"some suppose that humility is about beating ourselves up. humility does not mean convincing ourselves that we are worthless, meaningless, or of little value. nor does it mean denying or withholding the talents God has given us. we don't discover humility by thinking less of ourselves; we discover humility by thinking less about ourselves. it comes as we go about our work with an attitude of serving God and our fellowman."
