Humility

HUMILITY

(Cornelius Tyree, "The Moral Power of a Pious Life" 1859)

"The humility and gentleness of Christ." (2 Cor. 10:1)

How strikingly was this grace of humility displayed
in our Model and Redeemer. Though no other being
ever had the same reasons to entertain high opinions
of Himself, yet no one was ever equally humble. He
voluntarily chose . . .
  the humblest life,
  the humblest associates,
  the humblest food,
  the humblest dress,
  the humblest demeanor,
  and died the most humiliating death.

"All of you, take up My yoke and learn from Me,
 because I am gentle and humble in heart."
    (Matthew 11:29)

Humility is indispensable to Scriptural piety.
