A church realized the importance of humility, so it formed a committee to find the most humble person in the church.
Many names were submitted and numerous candidates evaluated. Finally, the committee came to a unanimous decision.
They selected a quiet little man who always lived in the background and had never taken credit for anything he had done.
They awarded him the "Most Humble" button for his faithful service.
However, the next day they had to take it away from him because he pinned it on.

"It is no great thing to be humble when you are brought low; but to be humble when you are praised is a great and rare attainment." - Bernard of Clairvaux.
Psalms 18:27 (GNB): "You save those who are humble, but you humble those who are proud."
