We must be honest in the way we look at ourselves. God knows who we really are, we must not let the throws of this life distort who we are in His eyes. A humble person does not get swayed by fame, wealth or a public reputation or the failures they have come upon. A humble person is very stable in their Christ-like humility and simplicity and they are very genuine in their love for our Lord.
God does not require us to be perfect; in order for us to be blessed and loved by Him. He sees us exactly like we are and it is through His mercy and love that He blesses us. We must learn to be humble and thankful and grateful that even though we are sinners, Jesus died to save us. He paid the price, so that you and I didn’t have to. That alone gives us reason to be humble and eternally grateful.
Pondering these thoughts today: How simple is it to be humble? Interesting question, yes... My reflection is this: Put Jesus first in your life and then flood your life with our Lord, our Lady, the Rosary, the scriptures and all things Jesus. This simple act of putting Jesus First, is the greatest way to keep your mind focused on Him, not yourself. I say try this for one day, ok 2 days straight and then be honest with yourself about how you feel and who it is you are truly thinking about.
LOVE YOU GUYS !!!!
