The Shy Virtue

The Shy Virtue

Jesus is the reason to stop concentrating on ourselves.

Overview

Humility is essential to the Christian life. Jesus said, "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." But how do we attain it when even a discussion of the subject can lead us into pride? This study, based on the article, "The Advent of Humility" by pastor and author Tim Keller, explores the role of grace in the humble life.
