2010 Book #12: Humility: True Greatness by C.J. Mahaney

I have finished listening to an audio book entitled Humility: True Greatness by C. J. Mahaney.

Humillity is something that goes against our culture, and yet as Christians we are to be like Christ who was the perfect example of humility. While we tend to focus so much attention on wanting to be great in this life, what is "true greatness?" This book was so easy to relate to and apply the principles he shared to life. I liked how the author used examples from his own life in search of humility.

One thing I took away from this book was the ideas regarding parenting. Are we teaching our children to focus on "true greatness," or do we put too much emphasis on greatness by the world's standards? What does it take for us to see our children as great....if they are sucessful in sports, academics, or their careers? Or if they follow Christ? Where is our focus in our families?

Also, this book really made me stop and think about Christ's example of humility.

The author did an excellent job in this book I believe and I recommend this book to you. The narrator was interesting to listen to as well with this audio book.

Have a day of blessings!
