Lewis and Keller on humility

Read a great article this AM from Tim Keller on humility. Thought I'd share a quote from C.S. Lewis that Keller included and a few thoughts from Keller.

If we find that our religious life is making us feel that we are good--above all, that we are better than someone else--I think we may be sure that we are being acted on, not by God, but by the Devil. -Lewis

Gracious, self-forgetful humility should be one of the primary things that distinguishes Christian believers from the many other types of moral, decent people in the world. But I think it is fair to say that humility, which is a key differentiating mark of the Christian, is largely missing in the church. Nonbelievers, detecting the stench of sanctimony, turn away. -Keller
