Self-importance is incompatible with the Christian life. To be humble is a basic requirement of discipleship. Authenticity matters most.

Do I see myself as having a role in God’s plan? Am I humble enough to accept my role and to see the gifts that I have as being at the service of others?

O God, may I be a humble disciple of Jesus. Make me ready to serve others today in a spirit that makes following Jesus attractive to others.
