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
