selfLESS | Mirrors and Windows

September 09, 2018

Gary Lee Webber

There has never been a time when people have been more confronted with “self” than we are today. From the rise in popularity of everything from self-help books to the “selfie sticks,” we are clearly a culture of people consumed with self. We are acutely aware of our own image and how that image is being projected to a world we have been convinced is always watching. This unending barrage of self has inflated our egos while simultaneously creating a deep sense of personal insecurity. In many ways, we are like a nation of people walking around gazing into hand-held mirrors, so consumed with our own image that we fail to see the people all around us. One of the most defining and yet misunderstood characteristics of Jesus, is that of humility. C.S. Lewis famously described humility not as thinking less of yourself, but of thinking of yourself less. Join us for a four-week series on humility and how this virtue can free us from the tyranny of self-absorption and make us look more like the Savior.
