True humility comes from considering our human condition and by pondering the example of Jesus Himself [Part 1]. Like a river flowing down a mountain, God’s grace flows downward to the humble, not upward to the proud [Part 2]. In today’s meditation, Johann Gerhard reminds us: it does not harm us to humble ourselves. After all, even the angels in heaven veil their faces in God’s presence.
