Dignity and Humility, the Game Changers

14 Apr

The Secret to change is to focus all your energy on fighting off your old ways, and concentrate on building new ones with dignity and humility.  I understand by incorporating wisdom, we may recognize that everything in life has its own season.  This wisdom should not only be associated with human activities, but with nature as well.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 tells us: There are a season and a time for every purpose under heaven.  So it’s best to know when that season has come for you.  I suggest we look to the heavens for verification.  (Jesus Christ)

In my small world, the word dignity is bestowed on one who is respected by the community, and carry themselves in a pleasing manner before God…  A person who can carry their head high because of their character, while remaining true to the vision they represent to the world.  A person of their word, one that can be trusted with a great conviction.

But, that’s just me, too much work for some.  Managing our dignity is a labor of love, something to be nourished at all times.  Did you know the word dignity actually means an elevation of character, a token of respect; the state or quality of being worthy of honor.

Your dignity can be mocked, abused, compromised, toyed with, lowered and even bad-mouthed, but it can never be taken from you.  You have the power today to reset your boundaries, restore your image, start fresh with renewed values and rebuild what has been taken from you in the past.  Shannon L. Alder

It is in our best interest to understand that all labor that is done, should be done to The Glory of God, and all the work is done to uplift human dignity.  This should be our priority and carried out to the best of our ability no matter how uncomfortable it makes us feel.

I believe dignity is a process gained through good characterization, and rewarded with personal honors that are earned as well as deserved.  We sometimes think we are all that, when in reality we would fare far better if we concentrate not only on ourselves, but basic human rights such as:  Our love for family, our country, the justice system and respect for all humans.

Humility is the quality or condition of being humble; with a modest opinion or estimate of one’s importance, rank, etc.

Did you know according to Mother Teresa, there are a few ways to practice humility?

In order to get the ball rolling in the right direction, she suggested we start with minding our own business, while not being overly curious about how others handle their lives, and to not interfere in their affairs.  Also we need to learn how to accept contradictions and corrections offered by others whole heartily, and without malice.

Something I find hard to do when I feel the teacher is not qualified.  Still, we must make wise decisions when we try to overlook the mistakes of others, while learning how to accept insults and injuries bestowed upon us.  Having the ability to ignore being slighted, forgotten and disliked.  Even when provoked, be kind and gentle when under duress, and never stand on one’s dignity.

Perhaps, the harder the task, the more embedded the lesson.  It’s Something to Think About.

FYI: Remember when working on keeping our dignity at a high level of respect, the quality of being humane is humility; kind, benevolent, and merciful.

Religion in its humility restores man to his only dignity, the courage to live by grace.  George Santayana

In Jesus name we pray that we become all we can be through kindness, humility and respect.   Thank you, Lord, Amen.

    Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?
