365 Days of Spirit-Filled Fruits Challenge-Day 183

We were playing one of our favorite games last evening, Uno Attack. My 10-year-old daughter gets easily excited about anything so when she won twice in a row she was just beyond proud of herself. I made a comment about being humble and of course, she asked what does that mean. This is one of those words that is not easy to define especially on the spot like that. It is more a word you know the meaning and you know it when you see it. I found an awesome definition on-line this morning that really gets to the heart of what humility is. It is from the brilliant man of God, C.S. Lewis. Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less.
1 Peter 5:5 All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
