“The load, or weight, or burden of my neighbor’s glory should be laid daily on my back, a load so heavy that only humility can carry it, and the backs of the proud will be broken.” – C S Lewis
CS Lewis always seems to get me with his challenges to humility.
This one in particular seemed a particular challenge.
I’m hoping that Christmas will inspire me to take on this challenge this year. To be focused on the glory of my neighbor. To put others always above myself in my daily to dos.
At Mavidea and Maxlider we’re lucky enough to have customers and coworkers to work with. They provide a daily opportunity to work towards the ideal described above.
The end of the year will go quickly. It will be easy to slip into ego, pride and selfishness as we go about our work.
Don’t fall in to the trap. Don’t let your back be broken with pride.
Make it a great day.
