Humility Pt 2: Humility & Confidence

Humility and Confidence
Humility Part 2

humility and confidenceDan and Melissa continue their discussion on humility in “Humility and Confidence”; in particular how humility does not lower but instead elevates the soul.

Show Notes:

  • Signs we lack humility: St. Josemarí­a Escrivá provides some insightful diagnostics.
  • Recognizing all the good we have is a gift from God.
  • False humility – many of us are guilty.
  • We often worry too much what others think. Do you take your confession outside of your parish?
  • Navigating the Interior Life offers a self-evaluation to gain an understanding of our root sin, and instruction in using the opposing virtue to overcome it.
  • Meditation #108 from Divine Intimacy – “Christian humility does not lower, it elevates; it does not cast down but gives courage…”
  • St. Paul tells us when he is weak, he is made strong. When a soul recognizes its weakness, it becomes irresistible to God.
  • Sister Mary is an example of humility. A cloistered nun of 40 years humbles herself to take a course on prayer and acknowledges there was still something she could learn about praying.
  • Jesus offers the ultimate example of humility, from the Incarnation to the washing of the disciples’ feet.
  • God gives us a gift in withholding intimacy until we become humble.
