Humility is not thinking less of yourself, its thinking of yourself less. C. S. Lewis

“Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.” James 4:10 (NASB)
Humility is surely the most elusive of virtues. Just when we think we have attained it, we’ve lost it! Real humility is expressed in serving, in not insisting on our own way or supposing that we have all the answers, and it is not insisting that we be given praise or preference.

Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work. Mother Teresa
