6 February Reflection Quote

"When I know myself and confess my nothingness, yet count on my Lord Jesus, I grow strong in his grace and love." Madeleine Sophie Barat, Letter 183 to Adele Lehan, 1856.

As people of our time and culture, we may not be very comfortable with the idea that we are nothing. It may seem like a false and unhealthy form of humility. Of course we are each of great value, but our dignity comes from being made in the image and likeness of God. Each of us can reflect the grace and love of God for others.

– do you feel humiliated by your limitations?
– when are you most conscious of God’s love shinning forth from you?
– how comfortable are you placing your trust in God?
