Humility Is Not Another Word for Hypocrisy

Posted: August 1, 2011 in humility, quotes

Humility is not another word for hypocrisy; it is another word for honesty.  It is not pretending to be other than we are, but acknowledging the truth about what we are.

– John Stott, as quoted in “Pottering and Prayer,” Christianity Today (2001).
