Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
-James 4:10

I believe that many of us can unknowing become full of ourselves. We find something that we are amazing at and allow it to quickly go to our heads. Pride begins to swell up in our chests, and we slowly allow our modesty to slip away. This weeks topic is on having humility. Humility, reminds us that where we are amazing, others can be phenomenal too. When we are focused on feeding our own egos, we build superiority in ourselves. It’s great to be good at many things, however, it’s even better to be humble and respectful. Maintaining our humility, helps us to build character and to stay spiritually grounded.

This week, lets each remember to work on our humility in our careers, with friends, and at home. When we face others struggling with their own pride and vices, let’s also be understanding and supportive of the path that they still need to travel as well. Remember, we all are a work in progress.

” There is no respect for others without humility in one’s self. It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels. Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less. It is unwise to be too sure of one’s own wisdom.”
-Saint Augustine
