“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” This, Jesus said, is the second commandment. Humility flows from this extravagant love that does not set the self above others. Or, if we look at Jesus’ life, we see humility that flowed from the first commandment: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength and with all your mind.” Jesus, in his life, saw himself as God’s messenger, as God’s chosen one. He set aside self-interest to invest fully in God’s ways and in God’s plan. He set aside privilege to be connected to and serve all who would receive him, particularly those on the margins of his society and world.
