I believe to be humble and show grace is not easy for the human race. We are all sinners and as sinners we are much more likely to act:
I think you clearly get the idea!
As sinners it is NOT our natural talent or ability to be humble and to show grace. We believe being humble is probably impossible without some “outside help”. What type of “outside” help are we talking about? The outside help is God. We know of no other help that makes us humble and allows us to show grace.
Reviewing my past poems, I was surprised to find several dealing with "humility" and on "being humble". My hope is reading these poems on humbleness will raise your personal consciousness of the "power of being humble".
As you read the poems below, you will see duplication in my words. There is duplication because being humble and having grace are two of the most difficult feelings for Mankind. Hopefully, repetition will help us to become more humble and possess the ability to show grace to others.
A few questions to jump start a discussion on humbleness.
1. Do you act normally humble and with grace? If not, why?
2. What is the main reason most people have trouble being humble? Could it be a feeling of pride? Or, maybe being hard headed?
3. Set a personal one week goal to be more humble and shoe more grace. Write down your efforts. How did you do?

What does it mean to Be Humble?
To me, it means to “Take up the Towel”
We take up the towel to serve others
We take up the towel to wash other’s feet
Washing feet humbles us,
Helping us to get down on our knees to serve
Down on our knees to Pray
Down on our knees to receive His Blessings
For me, being on my knees helps in being Humble
Humbleness is not a normal human feeling
I believe only God can help us be Humble

toughest human trait or feeling
Being humble is such a powerful of enlightenment
The power of humbleness is in its subtleness,
non boisterous and non-aggressive attitude

Why is this so?
Because, to be humble is to be more like Jesus Christ
The humbleness of Jesus portrayed great power and peace

Jesus is fully entrenched in your heart and soul
Natural humans or mankind do not naturally act humble
Humbleness comes from the Power of God in our hearts
Through Him, we have the means to be humble
Humbleness means to be like Jesus
