HOLY HUMILITY VS. THE PROUD HEART
"I am your Jesus, born Incarnate."
"I have come specifically to draw all people back into the arms of Holy Humility. See the differences between the humble and the proud heart."
Is aligned with God's Will.
Tries to remain in the background - unnoticed.
Does not express opinions unnecessarily; listens to others' opinions; admits he does not have all the answers.
Humility - which is the Truth of where he stands before God; is always in his heart.
Treats everyone with the same respect.
If he has special gifts, he gives God the credit, and does not brag
about them; he uses them only when necessary.
Pursues his own will.
Loves the spotlight - pursues it; is sad to share the spotlight.
Sets himself up as the expert; likes to be consulted.
Practices false humility which is humility for everyone to see; may even claim to be humble.
Reserves a special patronizing side of his personality for those he esteems or who are held in high regard by others; may ignore those whom he regards as unimportant while he panders to the others.
If he thinks he has special gifts, he lets everyone know about it.
Promotes himself - his ideas and philosophies whenever possible.
