Question: What exactly is HUMILITY?
Answer: Putting God first.
How simple is that. I don’t know about you, but I practice humility by TRYING to place the well-being of those about me first. It’s not easy. I have a lifetime of practicing placing me first – after all, I was born a survivalist. In 12-Step recovery, we discover that “By our refusal to place Him first, we deprived ourselves of His help." TRYING to place the well-being of those about us first is about changing our message from “How can I help me?" to “How can I help Thee?" It’s a way of placing our common welfare first. This act of unity is a way of placing spiritual growth first. Paying attention with love and tolerance of others all the while being mindful of their interests and agonies is an act of trying to place God first. Practice humility… “and all good things will come unto you." Give it a try. It works!
