Humility is a noble trait

Since it frees us from arrogance;

When we are modest of our importance

And set free from a prideful stance.

True humility acknowledges

Our need to fear the Lord;

Trusting in HIs wisdom and salvation

And to be grounded in His word.

It’s to have a genuine gratitude

With the desire to serve others,

And being aware of our bad qualities

And where love many sins will cover.

The Father displays humility

When He outreaches to the needy and poor;

Those afflicted and tormented

Pouring His love forevermore.

The Incarnate Son revealed

Humility from birth to death;

He served in meekness of spirit

And humble ways He’d manifest.

When we lean on God’s understanding

We’re displaying humility indeed,

Trusting in His perfect timing

And knowing that He will intercede.

He will show us the righteous path

Through prayer and meditation;

Leaving the arrogance of our ego behind

To submit without hesitation.

God’s ways and timing are best indeed

And until we humble ourselves to accept,

We will be frustrated with our expectations

And even have many regrets.

Humility is a beautiful trait

It’s refreshing and gentle too,

When we accept God’s leading and path for us

With His plans for me and you.
