Sometimes we feel greater than we are. Other times we think we need to portray ourselves as bigger than we are. There are even times when we feel less than we are. True humility is accepting who we are in the eyes of God-no more, no less.
Saint Paul writes to those struggling to appreciate their own goodness and esteem- that it is through the struggle itself that we find ourselves being poured out like a sacred offering and that in the end we can confidently exclaim, “I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
Every human being is a reflection of God so in order to know ourselves well we need simply to know God more.
