What Are Some Notable Examples Of Humility In Life?
Humility Lesson from the World’s ‘Poorest President’
There are a number of people in the world today who have shown an exemplary life of humility in life. Let’s take the president of Uruguay (Jose Mujica) for instance.
♦. He has refused to use luxury cars and other expensive assets.
♦. He drives around in “87 Volkswagon Beetle
♦. Donates 90% of his $12,000 annual salary to charity.
People call him the poorest president in the world, but he is not moved by what people say. This is a true kind of humility. Human beings must remember that we are mere dust and any moment from now we will leave everything behind.
The Bible Talks About Humility
Some other examples of humility in life appear in the Bible. Humility in life is one of the most popular virtues Jesus Christ talked about.
Humility is the gateway to greatness. But today, it is unfortunate that there are millions of people who feel very pompous because of their money, fame or power. They suppress the weak in many ways because of their money and wealth.
The worse part is to see some men of God falling into this category of arrogant people. Jose Mujica even joins queues in the hospital and people always criticise him.
He is telling the whole world, that humility is the key to greatness. Even Jesus Christ humbled himself by washing the feet of his disciples.
When you feel too important than others, you fall in life very quickly. Your position or wealth doesn’t guarantee you to exalt yourself.
” For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”(Luke 14:11).
The above examples of humility must inspire you to live a life full of humility, respect, and love. May God bless all those who humble themselves in life. It takes the fear of God to serve a fellow friend in humility. It is God who exalts, so everyone must learn from Jesus Christ, Jose Mujica and anyone who shows true humility in life.
