True humility frees us to be our true selves and to avoid despair and pride. A humble person does not have to wear a mask or put on a facade in order to look good to others, especially to those who are not really familiar with that person.

Oct 24, 2010 – Sunday Meditation (To be Humble is to Know who God is in our Lives!)

We come to our places of prayer, not to win or achieve holiness, nor to buy the right tickets. We come to pray, because we are honored by the saving love of Jesus and sent “home” justified by that love. We do not beat our breasts or beat up ourselves. Jesus exalts us, because we have humbly accepted who we are and who He is!
