Quote of the Day

Today in mass the priest discussed the virtue humility. According to Google definition humility means a modest or low view of one’s own importance; humbleness. Though my priest talked about how he didn’t really like that interpretation of it and shared a different definition he had previously come a crossed in book. It went something like this:

Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less. 

Rick Warren

I thought this was absolutely beautiful. Its so true. If we put others before ourselves we will not be thinking about our own gains and weaknesses. We are not belittling ourselves but rather building up others and making ourselves a better person in the process!
