Soul Pondering 12-13

imageimage“The word humility can be off-putting, as to most people, it suggests a condition of powerlessness, poverty, and defeat. A humble person, in this view, has no alternative but to acquiesce in all matters of significance, for they come to the table with no power whatsoever. But humility isn’t like that at all. Simply stated, it’s the grace that prevents you from harming yourself or others because of your pride, greed, anger, or arrogance. Humility is a protective shield: it speaks to you as a soft voice in the midst of the worst arguments, asking you, “Are you sure you want to say such cruel words to this person? If you do, you might win the moment but lose the friendship forever.” Humility is the grace that tells you to walk out of the room and cool off before you say or do something you’ll regret, and only to walk back in when you’ve calmed down.”
