He even paid the bill with his own money! Here was a man very similar to Jesus who practices what he preaches. In other words and in contemporary times he leads by example.

Being humble means the ridding yourself of ridiculous things that withhold good judgment. Being humble, means following good advice.  And, being humble means not worrying about what others might say. Jesus had his naysayers, as I am certain hope Francis does. If you want reform to come your way then become more humble and follow the path of those that lead by example.
