IMPACT195 School of Ministry Pastor, Scott Wessell, uses forklifts and cranes as an illustration of true humility. True humility is seen in Jesus in Philippians chapter 2, where even though he was equal with God he put on the limitations of humanity and humbled himself to death. Jesus was a forklift. A forklift has great power and uses that power to get low in order to raise others up. The other way to raise others up is to be a crane where you stand above someone and lift them up to your level, which is the opposite of humility; it's nothing but self-righteousness. Choose to be a forklift today—use your power to get low and lift someone up. For more information on the School of Ministry click the SCHOOL button on the top of the page.
