love and humility

i have begun to read more on what the Church Fathers teach reading humility - that love and humility are the same. the more i read and seek to be taught by the Church, the greater is my gratitude for being brought into a Church that can teach and Shepherd me. that i can learn about deep spiritual teachings on humility and love.

truly i have such along way to go in understanding how to love or how to be humble.

i have been advised to mediate on 1 Cor 13:3-13.

Here is part of this passage (NKJV)

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails. ...

i have often failed.

forgive me a sinner.

Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy.
