He was called Savior, Son of God, Prince of Peace,
Everlasting Father, Wonderful Counselor, Son of Man,
Lord of Lords,
his appearance was ordinary,
he invited working class folks
to serve with him in ministry,
he bowed to wash feet,
he was born in a barn,
to unassuming parents.
he did not resist arrest,
protest injustice at trial,
or respond when questioned
by Pilate and Herod.
He did not call forth bodyguards
or vigilantes in his defense.
He showed up in out of the way places
to marginalized people and loved them.
And yet, he became the most significant
person in the history of the world, calling
us to love and uplift all those around us.
This is humility.
