Humility is...

Humility is perfect quietness of heart.
It is to expect nothing, to wonder at nothing that is done to me, to feel nothing done against me.
It is to be at rest when nobody praises me, and when I am blamed or despised.
It is to have a blessed home in the Lord, where I can go in and shut the door, and kneel to my Father in secret, and am at peace as in a deep sea of calmness, when all around and above is trouble.

One cannot be humble without Christ's spirit giving strength. It is hard to live in the Spirit sometimes. I have learned to practice not being defensive for myself but only to defend when people speak of God wrongly. I have wondered if this is being humble too, to allow God only to defend me.
Thanks for your posts.
