“Humility opens the door to transformation” ~ Pastor Shawn
I really like this comment that our pastor made in church a few weeks ago. It reminds me that if we want to change for the better, we need to be open to the reality that we don’t know everything.
Change comes when we’re able to put pride aside and become teachable and open to the fact that we don’t have all the answers, and there’s more we can learn. If we are unable to do this, how can we change? If we can’t humble ourselves enough to be receptive to the teaching of others, then by definition we are closed to learning and improving. How then can we be transformed? How then can we become better if we lack the humility to be taught by others?
If we seek to improve ourselves, we must learn humility. Humility is not a sign of weakness, but rather a sign that we are secure in ourselves and eager to invite others to help us get better.
