|Having the Mind of Christ | James R. Miller, 1903||Humility|
We say we want to be like Christ.... But what do we mean by being like Christ? Are we not in danger of getting into our vision of it, merely an easy kind of life, a gentle piety, a dainty charity, a fashionable holiness, a pleasing service?

|Homeless at Christmas |
My nervous mind immediately thought of our car. Had I locked the door?... It's not that I begrudge homeless people of a warm house or good food, but I suspect that they choose their lifestyle and somehow want to be unclean.

|Little Things | George D. Watson, 1896||Humility|
There is no better way in the world to test every trait in a soul than by little things.... It is our unplanned, instinctive actions and words that reveal what we really are, not those large, conspicuous things for which we especially arm ourselves.

|Subdued | George D. Watson, 1924||Humility|

|Surmounting Barriers to Faith | George D. Watson, 1894||Humility|

|The Forgotten Ordinance: Feet Washing | T. H. Coffey||Humility|
I don't know of any better way to show, or prove, our humility than to humble ourselves at the feet of our spiritual brother or sister.... Jesus said, "If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet."
