Humbling yourself for the glory of God is the goal. Yet how does a person get to that point with regularity? Once again, I draw on Fr. Jonathan Morris, from www.christophers.org to shed some light on the subject: Read more… to see a video from Father Jonathan Morris and to read Mother Teresa’s 15 Points of Humility.
Humility: How utterly misunderstood this virtue can be in the minds of humankind! I will be the first to admit that I fall into the camp of those who have truly misunderstood the value of the virtue of humility until I started to research this virtue in depth. Once I knew what humility was really all about, I began praying to Jesus for a clean and humble heart.
I choose to surrender the clutter in my life, heart, spirit so Jesus will set me free from stuff and fill me with His Loving Presence.
May the things of this world fall away, so I may fall in love with God.
Pride entices me to work harder, pray more, fast religiously, perform heroic acts of virtue.
