Daily Strength - Humility


'If, when stung by slander or ill-nature, we wax proud and swell with anger, it is a proof that our gentleness and humility are unreal, and mere artificial show.'

St. Fran├žois de Sales, Introduction to the Devout Life

My battle with seeking humility, true humility, has been
ongoing and I suspect it will continue for many years yet. I have , however,experienced the joy of not reacting to unjust behaviours or words because I've maid the conscious decision to maintain my focus on the Truth as Jesus expresses it; to keep these Truths in my heart and at the forefront of my mind.It felt so liberating this week as I didn't react to this test of my humility. I know I achieved this together with a huge dollop of contentment as I continually pray for the grace to keep focused on servitude to the Lord
