Short Stories: Two Guys Walk Into A Temple...

"Humble people don't think less of themselves; they just think of themselves less." ~ Norman Vincent Peale

Reflection Questions:

  1. Where do I see unhealthy pride at work in the world? Where do I see it in myself?
  2. If the statement, "The more we suffer from pride, the more blind we are to it" is true, who is helping me recognize things about myself that I otherwise might not be able to see? Am I lovingly playing that role for someone else?
  3. What does a healthy pride and a healthy humility look like for me?
  4. What specific steps will I take this week to cultivate a healthy spirit of humility?
