Humility

“I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” (Ephesians 4:1-3).

In The Company of Sinners: How God Creates Trophies of Grace from Portraits of Pain

Are we more than the sum of our greatest sin? Are we identified by our past failures or a legacy yet unwritten? When I hear Tom Waite’s folk song, Shiver Me Timbers, I’m Sailing Away—recorded with success by both James Taylor and Bette Midler—I think of my father. “I’m leaving my family; I’m leaving my friends, My body is at home, but my hearts is in the wind; And the clouds are like headlines In the new front-page sky Shiver me timbers, I’m sailing away.”[1] My father was born in 1908. He was born to a family suffering from...
