Getting to the Heart of the Lesson

 

Humility does not mean self-abasement — it means recognizing an infinite power greater than our little self. Where does humility come in when self-esteem and self-confidence are valued so highly in our society? When we joyfully acknowledge our true selves with every breath, we can show children how humility and success can go hand in hand. Teach children confidence in their true selves, not in the little self of I, me, mine. Cheer them on and help them to see the amazing possibilities open to them when they see God within themselves and others.
