VIRTUE OF THE WEEK
To be truly humble, one must do away with self and realize that they are nothing without God. A humble man recognizes who he in comparison to God. He recognizes that it is God who has given him talents, wealth, friends, family, and strength. A humble man, through constant self-reflection, recognizes the progress he has made, the sins he has committed, and understands what it is he must do in order to improve. If pride is the root of all sin, then the virtue of humility is the foundation for all other virtues.
This week let us strive to be more humble. Let us take the time to properly self-reflect on what we have done in the past, what we are doing now, and what we will do in the future, to bring ourselves closer to God.
"Jesus meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto Thine."
