Joy in Humility

Ready or not, here comes another short story on one of the themes from Philippians.  This week, I’m focusing on joy in humility (Click here to watch or listen to the sermon on this topic.)

Once again, I’m writing a 100 word (or less) story on this topic (here’s the original post describing my project). 

For those of you who are following along in the Bible, this section focuses on Philippians 2:1-11.  Here’s my favorite verse on humility from this passage: “Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves” (2:3). 

Joy in Humility

Great is thy Faithfulness…la de de dum de dum”

“Pastor Earl, is that you?”

“I’m just about done. The bathroom will be yours in a minute.”

“Oh, don’t hurry…wait…what are you doing in there?”

“Somebody has got to clean this place.  Do you know how much mildew I find in here?”

“I’m coming in.  Pastor, I know money is tight, but this is ridiculous.  Our retired pastor emeritus shouldn’t be on his knees scrubbing toilets.”

“Son, as head pastor, it’s time you realize that the best way to lead is on your knees.”
