| What humility is and what it is notIt is a false sense of humility that prohibits us from speaking about the power of God at work in our human nature.Some would say, “who am I to tell anyone else what to believe?” Yet it is not humility to deny the gifts and graces that are continually being poured into our lives by our faithful God. That is more a habit of presumption.The power with which the apostle Peter spoke to the crowds on the day of Pentecost came from his sharing the basic facts of what God had done through Jesus’ death and resurrection. Were we to become in the habit of doing the same we would change the world.
