We must be careful to not allow the gifts of the spirit to distract us from the spirit itself.
The gifts are not the giver.
Nor are we defined by the gifts bestowed upon us.
The truth of our existence can only be found in and sustained through humility.
Humility keeps us grounded in the spirit so that we do not get carried away by what we feel that we lack or what we are fortunate enough to receive.
Only through humility can we stay the course as our path narrows.
Humility allows us to be led by the spirit so that we are not led away by everything else.
