Luke 18:9-14

 

We need to discover humility and humility is liberating. It enables us to stop thinking about what we have done and what we deserve and on what we focus instead on what God has done and how much God deserves. Humility may begin with beating one’s breast and looking at the ground. But mature humility looks exuberantly up to heaven, not with the arrogance of a Pharisee, mind you, but with joyful thanksgiving of those who are thrilled to know that they are loved.
