THE IMPORTANCE OF TRUE HUMILITY

Very often in modern usage the word "humility" becomes confused with the thought of humiliation. Thus the notion that in order to be humble, one must lower his self-respect tends to obscure the importance of true humility in our growth in Christian Science.

Our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, tells us in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 354), "Experience shows that humility is the first step in Christian Science, wherein all is controlled, not by man or laws material, but by wisdom, Truth, and Love." Thus we are not only made aware of the importance of humility, but we are assured that true humility means much more than going about with a lowly feeling. For its acquirement brings a joyous realization of the ever-presence of God and a knowledge of our oneness with Him as His expression.
