Sunday Reflection

What is true humility? True humility is not feeling bad about yourself, or having a low opinion of yourself, or thinking of yourself as inferior to others. Humility is truth in self-understanding and truth in action. Viewing ourselves truthfully, with sober judgment, means seeing ourselves the way God sees us. A humble person does not have to wear a mask or put on a facade in order to look good to others who do not know who he really is. He is not swayed by fame, reputation, success, or failure. Humility leads to knowledge, honesty, realism, strength, and dedication to give ourselves to something greater than ourselves. Humility frees us to love and serve others selflessly, for their sake, rather than our own. The Lord gives grace to those who seek him humbly.
