Bill looks at the wrong Old Testament lectionary passage for Sunday to discuss humility using the story of Joseph revealing himself to his brothers. We tend to view humility as the opposite of pride and can find ourselves in the trap of shame as a result. What if humility isn't the opposite of pride or shame? True humility steers clear of either trap and can help us see ourselves and others the way God does. Genesis 45:3-11, 15; Matthew 23:1-12.
