Humility Holds Us Together

“Just as one cannot build a ship unless one has some nails, so it is impossible to be saved without humility.” Saying 26 of Amma Syncletica

Humility is that which hold the spiritual life together. We may be adorned as a large ship off to voyage in the sea of spiritual warfare but without humility we are no better than the pharisees to whom it is said,

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.” Matthew 23. 27,28.
