Lowliness vs. Entitlement

We are a people of entitlement. Look at and listen to advertisements and notice how frequently the phrase "you deserve" is used.  Christ calls us away from such a sense of entitlement and calls us instead to a life of humility. John Piper speaks beautifully to this point below. It is well worth the two or three minutes it will take to watch.
