Why should One be humble?

Humility or humbleness is deemed to be the mother of all virtues. It is the exuberance of being courteously respectful to other people. This virtue entails characteristics of egolessness, reverence and modesty. Humility is one virtue that most people of today cannot fully fathom. In humility, one must know how to lower one’s self down without degrading one’s worth and esteem. One perfect illustration of humility is Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Her life was grounded on being humble that her values and beliefs in life always focus on other people and towards the Almighty. As quoted by Mother Teresa herself, Humility is the mother of all virtues; purity, charity and obedience. It is in being humble that our love becomes real, devoted and ardent. If you are humble nothing will touch you, neither praise nor disgrace, because you know what you are.”

Up until this time, the mystery of humility remains to be unraveled. Many people still don’t understand the reason why one should be humble. One major reason for man to be humble is that it serves as an offering to the Creator. Being humble to others is a way to be humble to the merciful Creator. Aside from that, humility is one important trait one must have because it tags other good virtues with it. More so, humility allows one to put God and other people first and be selfless. Along with these, one should be humble because only with humility that one can forgive, seek and open the doors for other virtues and it is one tool to making one’s weaknesses strengths.

There are indeed numerous reasons why one should be humble but the core of it all is for man to exude stewardship for the Almighty through the fellowship of men.
