HUMILITY
--Proverbs eighteen twelve B--"...before honor is humility."
What was old Soloman saying when he said such an outrageous thing?
Isn't it about heros not milktoast men most of the minstrels sing?
It's the honorable soldiers get the medals; it's the brave hearts not the weak.
We encourage courage and honor, but of humility hardly speak.
Webster gives humility one line, but to honor gives about nine.
Why is something so hard to have so easy to define?
Why does Jesus give it such credence? Why was Moses the most humble man?
It may be that it is a critical part of God's eternal plan!
Do we really mean it when we begin a discourse with:
"In my most humble opinion"... OR
Are we really saying: "Just shut up and give me the floor!
You must honor my honorable position!"
Do I really need to say more?
Except that: "What was that other thing Soloman had to say?"
"Before destruction the heart of a man is haughty." --Proverbs eighteen twelve A--

That's a good one Mack

It will make me think twice before typing or saying IMHO.

Sometimes words unspoken is the best humility.
Life is a learning adventure... you can never know it all
