That’s Who I Am

For all of his accomplishments in sports and politics, President Gerald Ford remained a humble man. He was known for his self-effacing humor. One of his best lines was—“I’m a Ford, not a Lincoln.”

This level of humility certainly stands out in our current society, especially compared to the out-of-control egos of some of our politicians. The Bible warns against pride, and it urges us to remain humble. We would all do well to strive for this virtue in our lives.

“Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring. Let someone else praise you, and not your own mouth; an outsider, and not your own lips.”—Proverbs 27:1-2.
