Humility is one of the hardest Christ qualities to emulate. Jesus personified humility by his death. Though He is God, he made himself lower than sinful humans by taking their sin. Though he did not deserve suffering, he obeyed the Father’s will which earned Him the wages of sin. It was entirely in Lord Jesus’ right to exercise His authority: to overcome his human tormentors, to punish those who showed contempt to Him, and to judge those He came to save. But He didn’t.
