Humility Is More Than a Word

Humility Is More Than a Word It occurred to me today just how often we, as adults, consider ourselves to be experts in many areas of our own lives.  By doing this we leave little, if any, room for someone else to be just as right or correct as we are.  This dawned on me... Continue Reading →
