Are You a Humble Hero for Your Son?

“Humility is the most difficult to fall virtues to achieve; nothing dies harder than the desire to think well of oneself.” -T.S. Eliot

“The only hope of a decreasing self is an increasing Christ.” -F.B. Meyer

“Humility is the proper estimate of oneself.” -Charles Spurgeon

Teaching our boys to be humble is difficult in our society. Our society continually inflates the egos of athletes, actors and others. No wonder our culture has a hard time being humble. We live in the wealthiest country in the world and most often have everything we think we need. Although success in itself is not a bad thing, when we begin to think of ourselves better than we should it can become a downfall. If we want to teach and model humility to our boys, we must know what it means to be a Humble Hero and how to model that for them. A scriptural look at humility gives us good insight into the DNA of a Humble Hero.
