October Virtue - The Humble Hero

For October, our virtue is Humble Hero.  Pastor and Author Tim Keller gave this perspective on humility from his book, The Art of Self Forgetfulness.

“C.S. Lewis in Mere Christianity makes a brilliant observation about gospel-humility at the very end of his chapter on pride. If we were to meet a truly humble person, Lewis says, we would never come away from meeting them thinking they were humble.They would not be always telling us they were a nobody (because a person who keeps saying they are a nobody is actually a self-obsessed person). The thing we would remember from meeting a truly gospel-humble person is how much they seemed to be totally interested in us. Because the essence of gospel-humility is not thinking more of myself or thinking less of myself, it is thinking of myself less.”Tim Keller - The Art of Self Forgetfulness
