POLITICIANS are having a rough ride at the moment.

They seem to be in constant conflict with the press, and opinion polls seem to suggest that they are not much loved by the public either.

One of the main complaints appears to be that they are arrogant and lack humility.

If we are honest with ourselves, these are faults that we all have from time to time, if not all the time.

In the Bible, we have the example of Jesus Christ who was completely humble and obedient to God.

In Paul’s letter to the Philippians (chapter 2 verse 8) we read ‘that he humbled himself and became obedient to death, even death on the cross’ and in his life he dedicated himself to the service of others.

The life of Jesus was a life of humility and service and remains an example to all of us, believers or not.
