The Greatest Stories Rarely Told- Uncommon Humility Part 4

Megan Lemmons – 8/22/21

  • Sacrificial Generosity
  • Radical Hospitality
  • Uncommon Humility

Embodiment simply means: a tangible or visible form of an idea, quality, or feeling.

Philippians 2:5-8

You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross.

  • He did not cling to his power
  • He gave up his privilege
  • Didn’t think of himself as too good to be with people
  • Lived in obedience towards God

2 Samuel 16: 5-12

As King David came to Bahurim, a man came out of the village cursing them. It was Shimei, son of Gera, from the same clan as Saul’s family. He threw stones at the king and the king’s officers and all the mighty warriors who surrounded him. “Get out of here, you murderer, you scoundrel!” he shouted at David. “The Lord is paying you back for all the bloodshed in Saul’s clan. You stole his throne, and now the Lord has given it to your son Absalom. At last you will taste some of your own medicine, for you are a murderer!” “Why should this dead dog curse my lord the king?” Abishai son of Zeruiah demanded. “Let me go over and cut off his head!” David then said to Abishai and all his officials, “My son, my own flesh and blood, is trying to kill me. How much more, then, this Benjamite! Leave him alone; let him curse, for the Lord has told him to. It may be that the Lord will look upon my misery and restore to me his covenant blessing instead of his curse today.”

Humility calls us to slow down & Reach Towards Mercy

Humility calls us to seek God & Ask Questions

2 Samuel 16: 13-14 So David and his men continued along the road while Shimei was going along the hillside opposite him, cursing as he went and throwing stones at him and showering him with dirt. The king and all the people with him arrived at their destination exhausted. And there he refreshed himself.

BUT WHAT ABOUT JUSTICE?!

We hold the tension of showing mercy, and seeking justice

Humility calls us to

  • Slow Down
  • To Act in Mercy
  • To seek God & Ask Questions
  • To hold the tension Mercy & Justice

Michah 6:8

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
