Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery

HUMILITY

“I believe the first test of a really great man is humility.”

– John Ruskin

An understanding of humility that makes sense to me is that of the man who is aware of his limitations but still reaches for the stars.

For years I thought that humility was groveling in the dirt. Keeping quiet and acting obsequious. Being a religious doormat for others to walk upon.

Nothing could be further from the truth! Humility is about speaking your mind, fighting for your ideas and opinions, creating through effort, sweat and debate. The humble man’s ego is based on reality — not fed on illusion. When he is wrong, he can admit it and is open to the ideas of others.

Humility is based upon a realistic self-love.O God, let me humbly rejoice in Your gift of creativity.
