Mike's Minute

By Mike Kelley

Humility is such a tricky quality. If you think you have it, you probably don't. If you doubt that you have it, you just might. I like the way that humility is presented in the following essay, by David McCasland:

Louis B. Neumiller was known for his humility, integrity, and commitment to quality. As president of the Caterpillar Tractor Company from 1941-1954, he led the manufacturer of earth-moving equipment through the challenges of World War II and into global expansion. His leadership style has been described as "success without fanfare." His mark of greatness, someone noted, was that he "let his company become a hero instead of himself."

We see the same quality of selflessness in John the Baptist, a dynamic preacher who paved the way for the Messiah. When John's followers became concerned that Jesus was baptizing people and crowds were following Him, John replied: "You yourselves can testify that I said, 'I am not the Messiah but am sent ahead of him... He must become greater; I must become less.'"

As followers of Christ, are we lifting Him up or seeking honor for ourselves? Rather than being disappointed when our contribution is unnoticed, we should be glad because our highest privilege is to magnify the Lord. He's the hero!

Honoring Him is the mark of greatness.
