St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross
At that time the disciples approached Jesus and said, "Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" He called a child over, placed it in their midst, and said, "Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever receives one child such as this in my name receives me” (Matthew 18: 1-5).
Christ is trying to tell us that the proud and the selfish do not walk straight into Heaven. Those who are humble spend their time trying to help and serve others without looking for credit or praise. Do you ever humbly serve others?
Lord Jesus, Your example of humility is admirable and I want to imitate You.
