A Virtue to Be Humble When Honored

A Virtue to Be Humble When Honored

Reflection: Numbers 12:3; Proverbs 18:12; 29:23; Isaiah 23:9

It is no great perfection to be humble when we are despised; but it is a great and rare virtue to preserve humility in the midst of honors.

Bernard of Clairvaux (1090 – 1153)
