FR. LEO'S DAILY MEDITATION #essentialsofrecovery


HUMILITY

“What makes humility so desirable is the marvelous thing it does to us; it creates in us a capacity for the closest possible intimacy with God”

~ Monica Baldwin 

Humility is not so much about trying to be good as accepting that I am imperfect. For too long, I thought humility was keeping the peace, appearing to be perfect, bottling up my anger and resentments, living a life of people-pleasing.

Today I understand that humility is being real. It is accepting my humanity and being honest in my relationships. Humility is respecting the lives of others while respecting my own. Humility is seeking to reveal the Divinity that God has given to my life. Humility is knowing that in the lives of my fellow human beings, the good and the bad are reflected in me.

God, let me have the humility to be real.
