1. ENGAGE IN WORSHIPING GOD
Worship of God is a natural act of humility as we recognize the greatness and wonder of God above and beyond all humans.
Focus on a part of your marriage that is a real limitation for you both. All marriages have chronic areas of weakness. Perhaps you tend to get stuck in a pursuer-distancer communication pattern. Or perhaps some childhood wounds make you sensitive to similar hurts. Perhaps you have different needs for time together vs. time apart. All marriages have limitations. Spend some time in prayer or journaling focused on accepting this limitation as a means of experiencing humility. Give your concerns to God and ask Him to speak wisdom to you about how to accept the limitations of being a human who is married to a human. Surrender your desire of how the marriage should be to God. Ask for His love to guide you.
Spend time listening to others. You can especially do this with your spouse and children. Ask them about the details of their life, what they hope will happen in the work they do (or play if preschool children) or what is most painful and difficult part of their day. This is an act of servant-humility.
4. MEMORIZE SCRIPTURE FOCUSED ON HUMILITY.
Some ideas include Colossians 3:12; Proverbs 16:18; II Corinthians 4:7. Or find a verse that inspires humility for you.
5. DO SOMETHING NEW AS A COUPLE OR FAMILY
As a couple do something new together that you’ve never tried before. Ideas include things like playing pickleball, or another sport that is new to both of you. You could try a new card game or board game. If you are feeling spiritual you could try a new spiritual discipline you haven’t before like perhaps lectio divina or listening prayer (google it). Your kids can join you, if they are old enough. Trying new things is a natural humility-builder. Notice how you respond to not being good at the new thing. Can you accept your limitations? Can you be humble?
6. ACT OF KINDNESS
Other-orientation is another part of being humble. Dedicate yourself to do something kind and thoughtful for your spouse (& children if you have them) this week. Perhaps texts of encouragement, or cover a chore that person usually does, or other creative kind acts of service.
