The humility Jesus models is that of being “down to earth,” living with a conscious connection to the humus from which God fashioned humanity. Those who humble themselves are aware of their “creaturely-ness.” Rejoicing in the gift of being, such persons are freed from a cycle of constant self-preoccupation.
-Br. Jonathan Maury, SSJE
A prayer for your day:
Jesus, you emptied yourself and entered the human condition, to connect yourself with us, your creatures. Help me to remember that I am made, and free me from the illusion of being my own god.
