An Open Letter From Mother Theresa

My Dearest Children,

It is our emptiness and lowliness that God needs and not our plenitude.  These are a few of the ways we can practice humility:
Speak as little as possible of oneself.
Mind one’s own business.
Avoid curiosity.
Do not want to manage other people’s affairs.
Accept contradiction and correction cheerfully.
Pass over the mistakes of others.
Accept blame when innocent.
Yield to the will of others.
Accept insults and injuries.
Accept being slighted, forgotten and disliked.
Be kind and gently even under provocation.
Do not seek to be specially loved and admired.
Never stand on one’s dignity.
Yield in discussion even though one is right.
Choose always the hardest.

Agnes Bojaxhiu
