Summary

Rather than pointing out the false humility in others, how do we recognize excuses and false piety in our own behavior and repent from it? Fr. Sergius Halvorsen explores false humility which seeks excuse from duty and personal accountability, appearing humble for personal gain.

Show Notes

Are you suspicious of those who cloak their excuses in false humility? 
  • I'm so busy and I just don't have time to help.
  • Thanks for asking, but who am I to take on such a responsibility?
  • I'll just keep quiet and avoid any conflict.
  • I'm so broken, how could God use me?
