“Everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.” Luke 14:1 In society today, humility may be seen as a weakness. When we look at those people whom we may see as role models, in sports, politics, business or entertainment, we often notice that they seek attention and adulation. Often they see themselves as better than they see others. Pride is root of all evil; the chief sin that often leads us to other sins. It is the belief that all we are and all we have are the result of our own efforts alone. Mohammed Ali often boasted, “I am the greatest.” In the boxing ring, he easily dispatched most of his opponents. However, age and injuries took their toll and Parkinson’s disease robbed him of his physical and mental abilities in his later life. Carly Simon sang, “You’re So Vain” about a man who had everything- wealth, talent, and good looks- but who was shallow and had few real friends. On the other hand, humility is gratitude
