The Excellence of Humility

"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." (Philippians 4:8)

“Every one who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted” (Luke 18:14).

“Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for ‘God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble’” (1 Peter 5:5).

Oh Lord it's hard to be humble when you are perfect in everyway.

Reminds me of an old-school tune by a friend.

The track is called, appropriately, Humble and can be played on the player to the right of the linked page.

Tell your friend I played that track - and others of his - on Hope City FM a few years back!

I remember seeing Marcel at the Village stage at Parachute a couple of years back. We thought he was the mack!

Love the Egg Yolk song.

He used to flat with Melissa in the big Greenlane flat (that no longer is...:-( ) back in our uni days...

Did he ever release a second album?

Uncle Jakey said...

I don't think so Steve, but he has been writing poetry and getting some published in local poetry journals and also presenting in some artist/poet complementary shows in the Bay of Plenty area where he lives.

The last we saw Marcel he was still song writing though and had one in progress which was a love song following the structure of a 'typical' rousing worship chorus...
