Reflection 37: Humility, Simplicity and Sincerity

There are three words to ponder today: humility, simplicity and sincerity.  Humble souls see and know God because they do not turn to themselves in their need.  They recognize that God is everything and, without Him, they are nothing.  Simple souls do not get caught up in the complications of life.  They are able to cut through the countless distractions and live a childlike trust in God.  Sincere souls are honest souls who are pure in heart and pure in their intentions.  Be honest and truthful in your Christian walk and God will overwhelm all that is not of Him in your life (See Diary #55).

Ponder these three gifts today: humility, simplicity and sincerity.  How well do you live them in your life?  If one stands out as the most challenging, then sit with that for a while.  Let God speak to you as you open your heart to His Mercy.

Lord, I open myself to the gifts of humility, simplicity and sincerity.  Help me to see each of them as a precious gift that You wish to bestow upon me.  May my mind comprehend them and my will embrace them.  Jesus, I trust in You.
