#BigRead13: Day 32: Humble

Today’s #lentphotos is “perspective” – I like the idea of seeing things from a different perspective … I’ve certainly seen a power pylon from this perspective:

#BigRead13 Thoughts

Humility is the quality of being modest and respectful. Humility, in various interpretations, is widely seen as a virtue in many religious and philosophical traditions, being connected with notions of egolessness.

There’s plenty of debates about what it means to be humble, especially within a Christian context, often tied in with those who seek to be “known” for humbleness… interesting at a time when the Catholic Church has just appointed someone who clearly seems to be humble, rather than seeking to be known for it (so far as we can see).

Luke 18-9-14: Good reminder to not seek to not compare ourselves to others, or to levels of humbleness … we each have our own journey…

Sheridan Voysey – always a joy to read/listen to .. and don’t forget to read Resurrection Year for the full story given a hint of here. Time is one of the most precious things we have … as someone who’s writing this the following day, having lost most of the day (when I’m over-busy already) in exhaustion … this is not how God wants us to live… he gave us lives to “live to the full” – and not just our own, but those we have encountered – particularly thinking back to my recent #tfbloggers experiences – “Who is my neighbour?” – we spend too long limiting that geographically…

Brian Draper: Lent 40

How do we see God in the everyday? Which I’m interpreting as stop waiting for the “lightning bolts”, and enjoy seeking (and seeing) God in the ordinary…
