USCCB - (NAB) - December 15, 2009
But I will leave as a remnant in your midst
a people humble and lowly,
Who shall take refuge in the name of the LORD:
the remnant of Israel.
Why is humility so darn important in the spiritual life...and what does it mean to be humble anyway? First of all 'humility' is not about debasing yourself in anyway. True humility is about accepting youself exactly as you are as a child of God and in need of His mercy. The importance of it is that without coming to grips with who you are and who God is, you will not be able to fully rely on Him (take refuge in his name) the way you were designed to.
