“By the grace of God I am what I am.” - 1 Corinthians 15:10
Paul was a great evangelist and missionary. One can argue that he single-handedly built the Western Christendom. There are schools, hospitals, and cities named after him. But he attributes who he is to the grace of God. St. Paul’s greatness is found in his selflessness, humility, and absolute obedience to God. Truly great people are humble. Arrogant people are insecure inside.
Dear Lord, we are often full of ourselves. Help us to empty our ego and fill our heart with humility, kindness and compassion. Help us to find our true self by losing ourselves in You. Amen.
