Humility part 3
People always have the tendency to look at other peoples’ mistakes and forget about their own. That is not been humble. When we are humble we learn to look at our own acts and behavior first. We learn not to judge others, but to help them instead. The Lord Jesus thought us what it means to be humble through His own acts, when He was teaching at the temple one morning, the Pharisees brought to Him a woman who was caught sinning, demanding that she should be stoned according to the law.
John 8:7 …He said to the, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.”
After a while everyone dropped the stones they had on their hands and left. One by one they left, till Jesus was left alone with the woman. Then He asked the woman:
“Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?….”Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”
Those people were just looking at the woman’s mistakes and forgot their own, but Jesus made them think and remember that they also had mistakes and they should deal with their own problems and forgive others. He also thought us the same lesson with the Lord’s prayer.
So, been humble also means to forgive others.
