From a Creighton Student's Perspective

It is difficult to find humility, and even more rare to demonstrate it from within. We are prideful and want to take glory in what we do because, let’s face it, we all want credit for our accomplishments. Yet as the disciples argued over who should ultimately sit at Christ’s left or right side, Jesus reminds his disciples that glory is not measured in how great we are, but how little we are. He best brings his point across when he says that those who are great, i.e. the leaders and the “show-offs”, are actually the least in society, and that those who live for others are the ones who bring glory to God.
Today, challenge yourself and demonstrate humility to those around you, even if they are your employees, students, and enemies. When we humble ourselves, we allow God’s love to permeate through us onto others who need him. It is then that we understand how God’s glory comes not from the strong, but the meek and humble. God bless your day.
