Humility is to put the other first. We need to allow our faith in God to empty us of our self-interest, so we can become others-focused. Christ thought only of us as He left heaven to be born into humanity in a lowly stable. Starting from His birth, Christ modeled humility to us. Christ did not even grasp His equality with God, He was so humble! His ultimate act of humility was to die on the cross for us. Self-sacrifice is the way of Christ. When we have the mind of Christ, we do nothing out of our own selfishness. In Christ, we are humbled to love others first and give of ourselves.
