What is the virtue humility, and what does it mean to be humble?
I did a little Googling on this last week and found these awesome videos from Gabriel Castillo. This guy is definitely intense, but WOW, what a teacher. Each of his videos are like a 30 minute retreat.
I found his two part series on humility, and this is what I got from it. Humility means knowing 2 things:
- The truth about who you are.
- The truth about who God is.
That’s it, that’s what it is.
So, who are we? We’re dust. We’re miserable. We continually fall into sin and can’t do crap on our own. My favorite line there: “I’m a wretch. You’re a wretch. We’re all wretches.”
Yes, we’re all wretches. But the good news is that God, who is infinite power and goodness and love, loves us and even became one of us to save us from our wretchedness. And in his infinite mercy, he fills us with his grace. And then,
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”
If you want to know more, you’ll have to see this video. Part 1 is about humility, and part 2 is about listening and following God’s will in your life.
Once you see this, there’s no turning back.
