In today's Gospel reading from Matthew 11, Jesus refers to himself as being meek and humble of heart. Of course, his whole life bore witness to that. So, if we are to imitate the Lord and become like him, we must learn to be meek and humble ~ it's absolutely required. What's most necessary also happens to be most difficult to acquire. Then again, the Holy Spirit can make it easy for us. Where we fall short, God can achieve. What an opportunity for us to place our trust in God here!
