"Humility - Honestly assessing ourselves in light of God's holiness and our sinfulness." - C.J. Mahaney

One of the places I frequently visit, to teach myself to be humble is Isaiah 6:1-5, where I see one of the most clear pictures of God's holiness and my sinfulness.

"In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his fee, and with two he flew. And one called to another and said: "Holy, Holy, Holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!" And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke. And I said: "Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts!" - Isaiah 6:1-5

Woe is me!

I do not say those words nearly enough.
