walking in true humility and love...

The daily prayer of the Co-workers of Mother Teresa
“Make us worthy, Lord, to serve our fellow men throughout the world who live and die in poverty and hunger.
Give them, through our hands, this day their daily bread, and by our understanding Love, give Peace and Joy.
Lord, make me a channel of Thy Peace, that where there is hatred, I may bring Love; that where there is wrong, I may bring the Spirit of Forgiveness; that where there is discord, I may bring Harmony; that where there is error. I may bring Truth; that where there is doubt, I may bring Faith; that where there is despair, I may bring Hope; that where there are shadows, I may bring Light; that where there is sadness, I may bring Joy.
Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort, than to be comforted, to understand, than to be understood, to love, than to be loved, for it is by forgetting self that one finds, it is by forgiving that one is forgiven, it is by dying that on awakens to eternal life. “

..I want to walk in true humility and love like this...Jesus walked like this.... It is so easy to find myself wrapped up in the worries and cares of the society in which we live in. This Humanistic spirit that creeps in and tells us "its all about me..." .... its all about what I have or what I don’t have...How I am perceived by other people, how I look, my accomplishments, ME Me ME Me…. GROSS!
.... As Christians we NEED to rise up in the OPPOSITE spirit of humanism... which I believe, is HUMILITY...
...Many times Christians wonder why they are walking around with a feeling of unfufillment...I believe that this unfulfillment needs to be a wake up call that we are allowing this ugly and selfish humanistic spirit whisper in our ear for way to long. LORD MAKE ME A CHANNEL OF YOUR PEACE…. MAY I BRING LOVE TO OTHERS….MAY I BRING PEACE, JOY, FAITH, HOPE AND YOUR LIGHT into the lives of others…. Jesus said…that WE ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD…. (Matthew 5:14) … I have been challenged today to walk in true humility…. to walk in love…
