de Sales: humility

Monday, December 5, 2022
The eyes of the arrogant man will be humbled
    and the pride of men brought low;
the LORD alone will be exalted in that day.
The LORD Almighty has a day in store
    for all the proud and lofty,
for all that is exalted
    (and they will be humbled)...
    —Isaiah 2:11-12 (NIV)
    True humility does not affect to be humble, and is not given to make a display in lowly words.
    ... François de Sales (1567-1622), Introduction to the Devout Life [1609], London: Rivingtons, 1876, III.v, p. 149 (see the book)
    See also Isa. 2:11-12; John 13:14-16; 2 Cor. 11:3; Eph. 5:21; Phil. 2:3; 1 Pet. 5:5-6
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, keep my eyes on Jesus.
