Pep talk Humble HandmaidSharePinTweetEmailPrint 2013 5 Mar “Sad? … Because you have fallen in that little battle? No! Be cheerful! Because in the next one, thanks to God’s graces and to your humiliation now, you will conquer!” ~St. Josemaria, The Way of the Cross SharePinTweetEmailPrint Related
Humility is not thinking badly of oneself; it's thinking accurately. Galatians 2:20 says, "I have been crucified with Christ, therefore, it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life that I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me." And 2 Corinthians 5:21, "He made Him who knew no sin to be sin, that we might become the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus." It's not about our failings, but about His faithfulness. It's not about our sin, but His finished work in making us His righteous children. We are who and what we are because of Him. That's thinking rightly.
