Humility Value for the Month of May
“Humility” – One of the featured values of the 912 Project for the month of May. It is a value that we must look to in our steps to improving ourselves and a value that it is important to find in a leader or potential candidate for office.
Ben Franklin once said…
“To be humble to superiors is duty, to equals courtesy, to inferiors nobleness.”
Mahatma Ghandi also said…
“I claim to be a simple individual liable to err like any other fellow mortal. I own, however, that I have humility enough to confess my errors and to retrace my steps.”
Humility is a value that we may have experienced in our own lives. It is humbling to me to know that Jesus died on the cross for me. It is humbling to watch a friend going thru cancer, and watch the strength he shows while going through it. It is humbling to me that God has given all of us the ability to be better people and know that He has equipped us to be able share His Word and participate in our community, locally and nationally.
So humility is an important value for ourselves and a quality that we should want and need in a candidate. Please keep this value in mind when you vet a candidate along with our other basic values and principles of our group, add some of your own. However the next superstar may NOT be the best representative you are looking for. Look for a person with values and principles you can believe in.
