John Chrysostom: humility

Monday, November 14, 2016
    Commemoration of Samuel Seabury, First Anglican Bishop in North America, 1796
    For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.
    —Romans 12:3 (NIV)
    Humility is the root, mother, nurse, foundation, and bond of all virtue.
    ... St. John Chrysostom (345?-407) (see the book)
    See also Rom. 12:3; Pr. 16:18-19; 26:12; Mic. 6:8; 2 Cor. 12:7-9; Gal. 6:3; Phil. 2:3-4; Jas. 4:6; 1 Pet. 5:5
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, my pride is the enemy of the humility that is Your desire for me.
