Table Talk: Humility Week

This Week In Lightgliders: 
Humility Week

We are in a unit in Lightgliders learning about the Five Lightglider Values. The theme verses are found in Matthew 7:17-18 (NLT)

 "A good tree produces good fruit, and a bad tree produces bad fruit. A good tree can't produce bad fruit and a bad tree can't produce good fruit."


This week we are introducing the Lightglider value of humility. We learned last week about the Lightglider value of purpose and how our lives matter because God created us. Even though God has uniquely created each of us to shine like stars in the universe, we must come to an understanding that we are not perfect. The sin and selfishness that began in the Garden of Eden carries on today in every human heart and causes division, brokenness, and strife. Admitting our need for God's love and forgiveness requires humility. Living with humility means to acknowledge our weaknesses and to live with dependence upon God's love, and not upon our own talents and successes which will eventually fail us. Only with humble hearts can we take the focus off ourselves, receive God's love, and truly focus on the needs of others.

Don't be selfish; don't try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don't look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.
~Philippians 2:3-4 (NLT)

Spark Video: The Value of Humility
We all have our own strengths and weaknesses. To be humble means to not think of yourself as better than others.

Prayer Video: Prayer of Repentance
We all fall short of the glory God intended. God calls us to repent, which means to turn from our sin and turn to God.
