Do you understand the importance of humility as a character trait? Do you have a good sense of humor? Do you see any connection between these things? Those who are humble don’t take themselves too seriously.
They can laugh at themselves and their own foibles, but are reluctant to laugh at others. They don’t feel the need to present themselves as being without flaws and are more open, honest, and transparent as a result. The proud are not so. They have an image to maintain at all costs, including deceit. This is a terrible burden to bear. I want you to walk in the liberty of the poor in spirit.
