We all admire humility when we see it. But how can we practice this foundational Christian virtue---and incorporate it into our lives? Shining a light on the Beatitudes, Bridges explores the links between humility and poverty of spirit, mourning over sin, hungering and thirsting after righteousness, enduring persecution, and seeking God's grace.

We all admire humility when we see it. But how do we practice it? How does humility?the foundational virtue of the normal Christian life?become a normal part of our everyday lives?
Jerry Bridges sees in the Beatitudes a series of blessings from Jesus, a pattern for humility in action. Starting with poverty in spirit?an acknowledgment that in and of ourselves we are incapable of living holy lives pleasing to God?and proceeding through our mourning over personal sin, our hunger and thirst for righteousness, our experience of persecutions large and small, and more, we discover that humility is itself a blessing: At every turn, God is present to us, giving grace to the humble and lifting us up to blessing.
