“Humility is the only true wisdom by which we prepare our minds for all the possible changes of life.” — George Arliss
Spiritual leadership understands the need for humility and there is much we could focus on regarding the affect of humility in leadership. However, the last part of this quote drew my attention.
Preparing our minds for all the possible changes in life is a significant thought to consider.
We are all aware how life is full of changes. Life is constantly changing.
If you and I knew the one secret to prepare ourselves for those changes, would we seek it, take it, and apply it in our lives? I know we all would. This is why I appreciate the value of this quote.
Humility is the one secret to make this preparation. We should remember, developing humility is a lifelong endeavor.
Humility grows to recognize our full need for God.
Humility works each day at putting the needs of others above our own needs.
When the changes of life come along, our humility will enable us to approach the change with the wisdom to deal with it appropriately.
