What do you have, until you realize that you have it, and then you don’t have it?

Humility does not mean you think less of yourself. It means you think of yourself less. – Ken Blanchard

“To be humble to superiors is duty, to equals courtesy, to inferiors nobleness.” ~Benjamin Franklin

* Jesus demonstrated it…dads need to do it.

Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. – Matthew 18:4
Jesus also reminds us: “For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted” (Luke 14:11). Because of our human nature, humility is an extremely slippery virtue. In the act of thinking we have it, we prove to ourselves we don’t. Once a person thinks he is humble, it’s very difficult to be humble!
