“Whoever would be great among you must be your servant.” Mt. 20:26
Humility is an often misunderstood virtue. True humility involves two things: (1) recognizing the truth about ourselves and the world and living the truth in our relationship with God, and (2) reverencing what is of God in others which leads us to an attitude of serving God in them. Pride, on the other hand leads not to truth, but to falsehood and selfishness rather than service. No one ever lived the truth with an attitude of service better than Jesus Christ. Let us “learn from him” by fostering true humility in our lives!
