Being Dust: Daily Reflection 2

“Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than yourselves.” Philippians 2:3, NRSV

“If we could remember that our lives are holy connected beyond what we can know, perhaps the fear and anxiety of this moment would dissipate into awe, as did my despair into the mountains. Humility may be the way to the redemption of the world.” Katie Harmon-McLaughlin, Being Dust: Ash Wednesday

Reflect: 

  • Notice your intentions today. When are you driven primarily by self-concern and when are you motivated by compassion for others?
  • When have you experienced humility and awe together? How did the experience reorient your perspectives or priorities?
  • How might humility be a path to redemption in your life and the world around you?
