Pride vs. Humility

“Everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.” My notion of humility has changed over the years. As I reflect on my life experience, I realize that I used to think that humility was about being submissive and unseen, low key, and lowly. More recently I found a poster illustrating the difference between Pride and Humility. What it said is this:

How do you define humility? Why do you think that humility is such a significant virtue for a Christian?

With faith, effort and the help of God, all of us can grow in humility, in that change of heart that our Scripture readings for this weekend invite us to. Take the time to pray and ask for the “gift” of humility.
