Humility is the truth

                The expression of the above title only expresses what should be our basic attitudes towards conduct and basic human relationships.  As the Holy Bible teaches on basic or ideal human conduct—“The beginning of human pride is to desert the Lord, and to turn one’s heart away from one’s maker.  Since the beginning of pride is sin, whoever clings to it will pour forth filth.  For which reason the Lord inflicted extraordinary punishments on them and utterly overthrew them” (Sir. 10:12).

                Hence to be humble is to search for the truth, live the truth and to be true to oneself in relationship to God, to ourselves and towards others.  It’s not to pretend to be what you are not.
