Humility

 
     Humility is not learned in a trice. That is why the Lord said: 'Learn lowliness in heart and meekness of me.' To learn takes time. And there are some who have grown old in the practice of spiritual endeavor, yet still have not learned humility, and they cannot understand why things are not well with them, why they do not feel peace and their souls are cast down.
