St. Teresa of Avilla on humility

“We shall never learn to know ourselves except by endeavoring to know God; for, beholding His greatness, we realize our own littleness; His purity shows us our foulness; and by meditating upon His humility we find how very far we are from being humble.”

St. Theresa of Avila (Interior Castle)

    What you say here is very powerful to meditate on.
    I was working on this one this morning.. Jeremiah 29:11 ‘For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.’
