A Voice from the Past - Clement of Rome

For Christ is of those who are humble-minded, and not of those who exalt themselves over His flock. Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Sceptre of the majesty of God, did not come in the pomp of pride or arrogance, although He might have done so, but in a lowly condition, as the Holy Spirit had declared regarding Him.

Clement of Rome, d. 99, First Epistle of Clement, Chapter XVI, (The Apostolic Fathers with Justin Martyr and Irenaeus, Philip Schaff, Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 2001,  p. 15)

How can we acquire this humility? How do we develop it in our lives?
