9 February 2016. A Thought on Humility…

Igumen Tryphon Parsons posted on FB about humility… here was my response:

Know thyself… really know thyself. If you don’t, you don’t have humility. Humility is accepting “what is”… it’s not self-abasement or false declarations of sinfulness. Have a care… much that glitters isn’t gold…

Again, I reiterate… humility is NOT self-abasement or thinking oneself “the least of all sinners”… it’s accepting yourself truly for what you are… and thanking God for it. False smarmy humility is the Mark of the Beast… NEVER forget that.
