Humility is perhaps the most precious of all virtues.  It can create a good outcome where a bad one seems inevitable.  It can save a life. It can promote peace. As is with most things that are precious, humility doesn't often come easily, and disappears as soon as you think you have it.

So how does one be humble?  I think humility is an intentional set of practices that one can get better at over time. Some ways to practice humility include:

Not wondering that someone has wronged you,

Not demanding deference,

Realizing you don't have all the answers,

Setting boundaries - admitting what you are capable of giving and what you are not,

Not doing someone else's job.

Can you think of other ways to practice humility? There are many, too many for a blog post I am sure!
