"Wherever there is a jackboot stomping on a human face there will be a well-heeled Western liberal to explain that the face does, after all, enjoy free health care and 100 percent literacy."

15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. 17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
- 1 John 2
I read a bit this morning on humility. Every time I ponder that virtue I become more convinced that humility and meekness are primary virtues that every Christian should cultivate. I do not like my lack of humility. I do not appreciate my too-often-nonexistent meekness.
Somehow, I think, humility is the key to not loving the world.
