Humility

From humility it is known that a man is a true disciple of Jesus, meek and humble of heart. If we wish to show evidence that we are true Christians, let us learn from Christ to be humble as He himself enjoins us, Learn of Me; for I am meek, and lowly in heart. (Mt.11:29). Let us engrave and deepen in our memory the saying of the Apostle now explained, For God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble (I Pet. 5:6).
