How Humble Are You?
How you treat someone is like a symptom or clue to what is going on inside of you.
What you think about that someone is the reality.
How do you treat and what do you THINK of those you consider to be “less than” you in some way? (“less than” you based on their skin color, their intelligence, their wealth, their beauty, their character, their standing with God, their physical or mental health)
How do you treat and what do you think of doormen, taxi drivers, garbage men, maids, drunks in the gutter, homeless people, prostitutes, bank robbers, housewives, little children…?
It’s EASY for people you admire to think you are humble. If the only people who think you are humble are your close friends and mentors then look again! How you treat the “lowest” person in your estimation is how humble you really are.
Are you treating everyone with respect, kindness and patience or just a few select people? Are you treating those outside your social circles with disrespect or disdain or looking down on them in some way?
