Musings on Humility

When it comes to fasting, there are only two types of practices:

Those who fast out of religious duty to feed their pride,

or those who fast from sincere discipline to feed their souls.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Heard today that questions end with a little mark that looks like a fishhook.

Those called to be fishers of men need to learn well how to wield them like their Master did.

Often the fish need to be drawn out rather than being demanded to jump  in the net.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Though I do not recommend this method of learning, while trimming a hedge last week

I was  shocked to find out that I wasn’t shocked when I cut through the extension cord.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

What is gained in pride will be lost in humiliation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’ve had to learn to quit using the phrase, “Off the top of my head…”

Even the most casual observer can see that there’s not much up there.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ever notice those who quietly do great things despite their failings

are often criticized loudest by those who do little?
