Pride is a mirror that reflects self; humility is a window that sees others. (Dick Dahlquist, teacher)

With the great emphasis today in raising children to have a good self-image, we may sometimes go a little too far. It’s important, of course, to teach children about themselves and their relationship with others. It’s equally important to help them learn as early as possible how to recognize and respect others. Mutual appreciation is necessary for successful companionship.

Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. (Philippians 2:3-4)
