    I wonder if humility is the one core attribute of the human condition which transgresses temporal and spiritual states.

    Do you have a lesson to share, to get things started?

    There are many lessons in humility in the life of Christ. Some churches take the one where Jesus washes the feet of the disciples and practice that in their churches as a demonstration of humility. My favourite one is this:

    The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners! (Luke 7:34 KJV)

    What lesson of humility is in the Luke verse you provided?
    I don't understand.

    Would you say it is commonplace to see a priest of pastor or church leader, hanging out with the types described in the Luke passage?

    So Jesus is humbling Himself by 'hanging out' with sinners.

    Why would He then not allow these sinners into the Kingdom of God?

    He said humility, not hostility.

    Edit: 🙂

    I think it comes from our ability to control the future. I shrivel thinking about it,

    I am not strong.

    But I am aware.

    Because Jesus came to bring sinners to repentance. He hung out with them to help them change from being sinners to being righteous. Those who made this change will enter the kingdom of God.

    Vast swathes of "humility" are perhaps simply realism and honesty. By contrast, apparent "humility" can often be an affectation seeking to draw attention to achievements or importance, and burnish them with an air of modesty.

    For me humility means I know when I fight I may lose. Arrogance is the enemy, in a way.
