And Mary said:“My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior. For he has looked upon his handmaid’s lowliness; behold, from now on will all ages call me blessed He has thrown down the rulers from their thrones but lifted up the lowly. LK 1:46-48 AND 52
Humility is the key to grace. Mary is a beautiful example of humility. She embarrasses everyone. Ask God for humility. The humble person can receive many other gifts.
And all of you, clothe yourselves with humility in your dealings with one another, for: “God opposes the proud but bestows favor on the humble.” 1 PETER 5:5
Lord, I ask You for the grace of humility. I want to live only for you and give you all the glory!
My heart exults in the LORD, my horn is exalted in my God.“The bows of the mighty are broken, while the tottering gird on strength. 1 SM 2:1 AND 4
