Have you noticed a pattern in the things from which we need to be delivered in order to become more humble? The desires all are statuses that move us to the head of the table. The fears all are demotions that remove us from the spotlight and cast us into the fringes of society. It's quite enlightening when we think of it in those terms—especially when we take into account that true humility is moderate. We aren't to tip the scales one way or the other. We are simply to…be. Be ourselves. How do we accomplish this? By forgetting ourselves! Clearing up that "I" trouble.
Let's pray: From the desire of being honoured and the fear of being wronged, deliver me, Jesus. Amen!
"Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves." (Mt 11:29)
