confession: humility

God…
We want to be humble.
We don’t like to call attention to ourselves…
unless we’re doing something.
We don’t assume that we have all the answers…
unless we’re still breathing.
We don’t want to be given titles…
unless we can use them for our own advantage.
We want to be humble…
because you said it will make us great.
Help us understand what humility means…
and teach us to be faithful servants…
to ourseves, to one another, and to those around us…
