STRONGLY HUMBLE

Not that the rest of our staff does not fit this detail, but our youth minister is a unique sort to work beside. Bobby Smith is 26 years old and possesses a spirit about him which I find impressive; he is strongly humble.

Bobby is not only our youth minister. He is also our preacher training intern. We are intentionally grooming him to be a pulpit minister one day.

Bobby is strong in that he is not a push-over because someone thinks he should move one way or another. He is strong in his ability to think, to act, and to react. I marvel at how wise he is in areas that I am not.

Too, his humility allows him to receive instruction and correction. His face reflects a heart which is eager to learn everyday.

Bobby Smith is a friend to many; including me. I believe he will do well in the kingdom because he has that spirit combination of strength and humility. This is but another servant of Christ whom we can see doing many things right.

Who might you know in your circle who is Strongly Humble?
