On Humility And Inescapable Gratitude

Becoming a Christian is an inherently humbling process. Not incidentally humbling. Inherently humbling. And it should work itself out into every dimension of our lives.

On inherent humility: “Two men went up to the temple complex to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee took his stand and was praying like this: ‘God, I thank You that I’m not like other people — greedy, unrighteous, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give a tenth of everything I get.’
“But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even raise his eyes to heaven but kept striking his chest and saying, ‘God, turn Your wrath from me a sinner!
’” Jesus circa 31 AD, Luke 18:1-13 HCSB

On the resulting gratitude: “So you will recognize them by their fruit.” * Jesus, circa 31 AD, Matthew 7:20 HCSB

* Christian gratitude, born of humility and by its own nature, leads unfailingly to Godly fruit.
