Humility is the condition of knowing one's shortcomings. A. Kempis: "A lowly knowledge of yourself is a surer way to God than the deep searchings of man's learnings." Jesus made love and humility one. Humility is not a virtue by itself; but it is pure receptivity, the expression of inner need, the prayer for God's grace and forgiveness, in a word, the opening up of the heart to God and others.

Saint Paul served the Lord with all humility of mind and with many tears, and so should we. There is no honor without humility. Solomon in all his wisdom knew that "he that refuses instruction despises his own soul, but he that hears reproof gets understanding. The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom and before honor is humility." And again, even stronger, "Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honor is humility." "By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches and honor and life." Micah: "O man, what is good? And what does the Lord require of you? To do justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."

To be able to humble yourself is to put away the spiritual pride that separates the true church from the harlot. Peter tells us that we should "be subject one to another and be clothed with humility, for God resists the proud and gives grace to the humble." Babylon with all her incompatible doctrines cannot be brought to humility because of denominational bias. Every church thinks that they are the right one, every church thinks that they have the corner on the truth and the rest of them have gone the way of error. Until we can all come together in the humility that is expected of us as Christians of wisdom, we cannot come to one accord. And Jesus cannot come for us until we do.
[34, 326, Acts 20, Proverbs 15, 18, 22, Micah 6]

The Lord has given Christians the grace to reconcile the children to their Fathers
