I have had the virtue of humility on my mind lately. When I was preparing the devotional for YW Camp, my mind kept wondering between Humility and Testimonies. Testimonies won because I had a much stronger feeling in that direction, but I just can't get the thought of humility out of my head. Is someone trying to teach me something here?
After much pondering and thought, I feel that humility is the foundation for all selfless acts. Serving, giving, loving, being a friend, faith, integrity, divinity, obedience, great leadership, and being non judgemental.
I have been trying to think to myself how or what I could do to be a little more humble in my life. I am certainly far from the "humble" example, but that doesn't mean that I am not going to try daily to develop the virtue within myself. I do know that humility is not tearing yourself down publically in front of people to be little yourself. That is not how God would want you to treat yourself.
So I pose the question for all of you: What is the most humbling act you have ever witnessed and how did it change your life?
I hope we all are a little more unselfish today, Go out and do something kind for someone else! Maybe one day, we will have the honor of being humble, until then, I say we just strive to somehow get there.
PS...Megan and Ann, this is the picture I was telling you about. Dying to know who the artist is, does anyone have a clue?
