“Christian humility….requires that we hold loosely to any cherished self-image, always on guard against the ways we use our self-image to insulate ourselves from the call to complete dependence upon God. Thus we almost always discover our humility, not by observing what we think of ourselves at any given time, but rather by observing how we respond to threats to what we think of ourselves at any given time. Our humility chiefly consists not in what we think of ourselves but rather in the disposition of our wills toward the achievement, maintenance, and protection of cherished ways of thinking of ourselves.”
