Bible Study Guides – Humility on Stilts?

December 27, 2009 – January 2, 2010 – “The humility that Jesus speaks of in the text is not a humility on stilts, as was the Pharisee’s, parading itself before the eyes of men, that his righteousness might be seen and praised of men. Humility is before honor.” The Signs of the Times, May 16, 1892.


Welcome to humiliations. They are like our Lord’s crown of thorns, painful to wear, and sure to be the occasion of many blows upon our heads from the reeds in the hands of our enemies. But they are a mark of honor, as well as abasement.
