Cultivating Humility - Part 2
Paul tells the Colossians church that in light of God’s salvation for them, there should be changes in their lives - part of this is putting on humility.
Humility is a character that is evident in our relationship with others; it can be exercised as we relate with others. God loves humility and seeks it out; He exalts the humble.
