I have been accused of lacking humility most of my life as I have a double A personality. Passive people seem to believe that one must be passive in order to achieve humility. Humility is not a status. Humility is not weakness. Humility is not necessarily quiet or peaceful. SO WHAT IS HUMILITY?
Years ago I was told that humility was merely realizing your right place with God and not your place in society. If I feel that I am in charge of my life then I lack humility. If I don't give God credit for my life then I lack humility. Jesus, one of the most humble people to walk the earth, said, "the father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works." One's greatness is a direct reflection on one's humility.
The more one allows arrogance to dispel humility the greater the distance from God. The farther we get from God the more pain is generated as a result of God's love for us and his refusal to lose our soul. There is nothing we can do to separate God from ourselves but much can separate us from God. The Ten Commandments and most of the stories in the Bible reflect the dangers of SIN (Self Inflicted Nonsense) or those things that block God's love. We must, through humility, stay in constant conscious contact with God if we want constant blessings.
Live loud and stay humble. Love God and see God's greatness in all of HIS creation. Do not look for the bad in anything but stay in wonder and awe of all things. If one basks in love one cannot be basked in love and always remember...
Your Life is PERFECT!
