Humble Beginnings - Bluefish TV

I remember in junior high school, our school slogan was "Humble yourself at Battle Creek". Growing-up, I really never understood what it really meant. As I grew older, it became more meaningful. I have to admit, I do have a lot of pride. I guess it's something we "all" strive for-especially individuals who had a very "low self-esteem" (like me) growing-up. I know it's different from "self-confident", but I have to admit there is some pride too. You hear it a lot in sports. Like in Minnesota, us football fans here have that "Viking pride". As long as that pride doesn't make you think "highly" with oneself.

2 Corinthians 12

Paul’s Vision and His Thorn

"..I will not boast about myself, except about my weaknesses. 6 Even if I should choose to boast, I would not be a fool, because I would be speaking the truth. But I refrain, so no one will think more of me than is warranted by what I do or say, 7 or because of these surpassingly great revelations. Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. 8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. ..
