Thought of the Day October 23, 2019 Humility

By 11:32 AM

The humble receive praise the way a clean window takes the light of the son. The truer and more intense is the light is, the less you see of the glass....Humility is the surest sign of strength. (Thomas Merton)

The focus is not the self but the other. Too often we fail to be a conduit. The praise of others is to God who has used us to touch another. Sometimes we are like the ant on top of the elephant. The elephant tramples the trees, and we think we have great power. Humility lives in the truth and seeks to see things through God's perspective.
