Last week I had the privilege of hiking in the Montana wilderness with Rankin Wilbourne, a dear friend and pastor from southern California.
As we shared about the challenges, blessings and setbacks we’ve both experienced in our personal lives and ministries, Rankin said something I will never forget:
“I’ve discovered that anything that humbles me is good for me.”
Wow. That put many of my life experiences into a more helpful perspective.
I hope it will do the same for you.

PS â€“ Rankin’s first book, Union with Christ, was just featured in Christianity Today. I’ve just started it myself, but I already see direct applications to relational wisdom. I commend it to you as book that will profoundly impact your relationship with God and the people around you.
- Restate or expand on Rankin’s statement in your own words.
- How can this insight help us to deal with the inevitable struggles and failures of life in a fallen world?
- Share an experience that humbled you and eventually proved to be good for you.
