Power of Humility

Whoever exults himself will be humbled but whoever humbles himself will be exalted Matthew 23:12 I’ve heard it said that the top three virtues needed to live the Christian life are humility Humility Humility I hope that made you smile Everyone can use more humility the foundation of all virtues Our society tends to exalt excessive selfishness and personal power as well as pleasure wealth fame fortune No one is immune from such attractions Yet humility’s power detaches us from what fails to satisfy While humility sheds light on our vanities mistakes-things God might be calling us to reform Or repent of during Lent It also empowers us with the good The true and the beautiful Only by ridding the excesses Our sins Our vices Can we be empowered to do the things that bring God’s love Redemption to our fallen world
