“Humility is the only true wisdom by which we prepare our minds for all the possible changes of life.” - George Arliss
Humility reminds us that we’re no more important than anyone else.
Humility reminds us that no amount of success we’ve in the past guarantees success in the future.
Humility reminds us that it’s not about us.
Humility reminds us that each individual in this world matters.
Humility reminds us to focus on what really matters.
Humility makes us more authentic, which breeds trust.
Humility makes us better professionals, better leaders, and better human beings.
The truth is, no matter how many wins you have, no matter how successful you are, no matter how happy you are, a dose of failure (whether at work, in a relationship, or any other aspect of your life) - as hard as it can be, can lead to a dose of humility, which to me, is one of the most valuable ingredients to prosperity.
I received that dose of humility, and for that, I am grateful.
The center of all theology, of the entirety of the Christian faith, is Christ himself. The Christ-event—in particular his death and resurrection—is the center of time: everything before it leads up to it; everything after it is shaped by it. If Christ were not God in the flesh, he would not have been raised from the dead. And if he were not raised from the dead, none of us would have any hope. My theology grows out from Christ, is based on Christ, and focuses on Christ.
Nelson Mandela, one of the world’s most courageous leaders, has passed away. South Africa –indeed, the whole world – is saying goodbye to a great human being and an incredible inspiration. I am among the millions around the world who feel a deep sense of loss. The fact that Mr. Mandela lived to the age of 95 does not diminish in any way our feeling of immense grief; nor does the fact that his health has been frail for a while now, severely limiting his public engagements.
By the force of his amazing personality, his incredible achievements, his sweeping vision, his enormous generosity and his admirable values, Mr. Mandela’s presence served — and will continue to serve — as a beacon for all those who believed in the power of political good eventually overcoming divisive evil.
Thank you very much Nelson Mandela – for all the good that you delivered to so many, and for all those that you helped, both in South Africa and well beyond. We are deeply indebted to you and, already, we miss you enormously. We will never forget you.
The Bible is not an argument, it is a record of human experience. The point is not to prove that it’s the word of God or it’s inspired or it’s whatever-is-the-current-word-people-are-using, the point is to enter in to its stories with such intention and vitality that you find what it is that inspired people to write these books.
Don’t you ever say I just walked away, I will always want you.
I can’t live a lie, running for my life
I will always want you.
