"Humility is powerful, for it is based on the sense of being absolutely dependent on the grace of God. That is why a good Christian has such a serene and confident spirit, combined with the utmost humility. He aims very high, attempts great things and yet without proud looks or thoughts, because he is not thinking of himself, but of God. ‘I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me’ (Philippians 4:13). He has the simple, childlike heart, because he depends so much on his heavenly Father.
Humility is not worried about ‘face’. It is prepared to own a fault, a mistake, make an apology, or make restitution if it has wronged anyone."
