Odd Couple

Humility and confidence are the hallmarks of someone who knows both their limitations and their gifts thoroughly.  It is unusual to find these characteristics evenly present in a person.  Either we feel the weight of our limits too much or exalt in our gifts too much.  The person who understands the gospel of Christ correctly, however, knows both the the true depth of humility and the height of confidence.  Broken and accepted.  Unworthy and loved.  Jesus and us.  Odd couple.
