Chapter One The Promise of Humility In a culture that so often rewards the proud-a world quick to admire and applaud the prideful, a world eager to bestow the label "great" on these same individuals -humility occasionally attracts some surprising attention.

Take, for example, the bestselling book Good to Great. Since , this leadership manual from Jim Collins has become one of the most popular and influential in the business world. The book is driven by this question: Can a good company become a great company, and if so, how? To find the answer, Collins and a team of researchers spent five years studying eleven corporations that had made the leap from being merely good companies to being great ones.

I had the chance to hear Jim Collins speak on this topic to an audience of pastors and business leaders. In his presentation, Collins identified two specific character qualities shared by the CEOs of these good-to-great companies. The first was no surprise: These men and women possessed incredible professional will-they were driven, willing to endure anything to make their company a success. They were seemingly ordinary people quietly producing extraordinary results.

In Isaiah we read these words from the Lord: This is the one to whom I will look: he who is humble and contrite in spirit and trembles at my word. This profound passage points us to an altogether different motivation and purpose for humility than we will ever find in the pages of a secular business manual. Here we find motivation and purpose rooted in this amazing fact: Humility draws the gaze of our Sovereign God. If we understand the background of this passage, we find even richer meaning.

Here God is addressing the Israelites, a people with a unique identity. Chosen by God from among all the nations on earth, they possessed both the temple and the Torah-the Law of God.

In a sense they had everything going for them except what was most important. They lacked humility before God. But humility does. God Helps Those The eyes of God are a theme running throughout Scripture. Take, for example, the familiar words of 2 Chronicles , "For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose heart is blameless toward him. Nothing escapes His notice.

God is decisively drawn to humility. What a promise! Listen to this familiar passage again for the very first time: "God This is the promise of humility. God is personally and providentially supportive of the humble. And the grace He extends to the humble is indescribably rich. As Jonathan Edwards wrote, "The pleasures of humility are really the most refined, inward, and exquisite delights in the world.

What Is Humility? Our definition of humility must be biblical and not simply pragmatic, and in order to be biblical it must begin with God. As John Calvin wrote, "It is evident that man never attains to a true self-knowledge until he has previously contemplated the face of God, and come down after such contemplation to look into himself. Do You Have It? A few years ago our church-Covenant Life Church in Gaithersburg, Maryland-celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary. Listening intently to Gary that morning was a church member and small-group leader named Jim.

And Jim said to himself, Yes, we had that. Gary continued, "We were in love with Jesus Christ and grateful for His substitutionary sacrifice on the cross. Once again Jim inwardly responded, Okay, we had that. Then Gary said, "And there was a strong emphasis on humility, especially among the leaders. That we did not have. Will they testify that humility characterized our lives?

So many human ventures, so many grand designs of mankind, have been undermined because humility was lacking on the part of those involved. Our pursuit should be driven by the amazing promise that humility holds out to us: God gives grace to the humble! What are you building with your life?

A marriage? A family? A business? A church? A career? They had humility. They had what mattered. Excerpted from Humility: True Greatness by C. Excerpted by permission. All rights reserved.
