Cultivate humility.

To be exalted is to be in danger.


One lesson in sports we all learn is “no one can win all the time.” It is a life lesson as well, as a life based on triumph over others will never fulfill. As we meditate this week consider your life and ask yourself how much of it is based on getting ahead, acquiring more, and/or a desire for perfection. If it is, there will come a point when there is either defeat or no more mountains to climb. What then?


Humility teaches us not to add, but to take away. In one of God’s many paradoxes, the way to obtain perfection is to free from any desire for it.
