BEING HUMBLE

Leave a comment

O Lord Most Holy,
being humble is not a trait
that most people cultivate
in our society. We may
bow our heads to you, Lord,
but to defer to others
goes against our culture’s
aggressive drive to get ahead.
Getting ahead in your kingdom
is obviously another matter.
Open our hearts
to receive your teaching
and learn to honor all others
as your beloved children.

Matthew 18:1-4:
At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” He called a child, whom he put among them, and said, “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever becomes humble like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”
