Humility is often portrayed in this society as something weak, yet I have learned that the more humble a person is, the more powerful they can become. I wanted to share some words from the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan out of a study guide he produced titled “The Characteristics of Humility”.
Min. Farrakhan writes:
Humility is the quality or condition of being humble. One who is humble is modest, unpretentious, unassuming and submissive.
The humble man does not think grand things of himself that exalt him above others. It is not a feeling that he is undeserving, but it is a quality that a leader must have to lift up the weight of the people. The power of strength is in placing it under the weight. The leader cannot pull the people from above. The leader must get under and lift them up.
