Attaining humility is a byproduct of our awareness of the awesome power of our immortal Creator. We are finite in the presence of the Infinite. We are extremely limited when compared to the One who is unlimited. We are miniscule when compared to the immense size of His total creation of which we are aware of only a tiny fraction. And what we are aware of is mind-boggling in its complexity, grandeur, and size.
Humility is what any intelligent, thinking human will have to experience with even a partial awareness of what has already been revealed to us.
