Humble Generosity: Embrace the Kingdom and Love your Neighbor daily

Philippians 2:7-9

“And being found in human form, Jesus humbled himself and became obedient to the point of death— even death on a cross.”

At the very center of the Christian faith is Jesus on the cross giving his life as an act of humble generosity. Years later as St. Paul is encouraging the Philippian Church to live humbly and generously, he quotes a hymn about Jesus giving his life as a ransom for many by humbling himself to the point of death. When Christians today live humbly and generously we are embracing the Kingdom life which Jesus modelled for us. It is only through humble and generous living that we can love our neighbour as ourselves.

Suggested Habits

  • For creatives, see your acts of creation as a product of humility and generosity. Try and make something every day and offer it to the world.
  • Make a habit of considering other people as better than yourself through small consistent acts like opening the door for other people.
  • Be mindful of your language when speaking about other people.
