The Dignity of Humility

"Humility is the stepping-stone to a higher recognition of Deity. The mounting sense gathers fresh forms and strange fire from the ashes of dissolving self, and drops the world." So writes Mrs. Eddy on page 1 of "Miscellaneous Writings."

One student of Christian Science, who had earnestly desired to know true humility, was much cheered by a clear realization that humility means knowing that there is no evil in real being. Because God, infinite Love, creates and loves all, there is no reality in evil. Necessarily, then, humility is the willingness to accept and live this vital truth. Humility is a link to a higher recognition of God, wherein it is seen that evil does not exist.
