Humility is a core Christian value. It is key to how Christians relate to each other. It reflects our deepest understanding of what God has done for us.

Ephesians 4:2: "Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love." 

1. It means not thinking much about ourselves

2. It means recognising people as children of God

Everyone is made in the image of God. 

3. It means holding lightly to our own sense of self-worth

4. It means maintaining a relationship with God

CS Lewis wrote: "A proud man is always looking down on things and people: and, of course, as long as you are looking down you cannot see something that is above you." Humble people don't look down, they look up, and what they see of the vast love of God for his creation conditions how they see everyone else.
