As an Orthodox Christian I am called to have humility in all parts of my life. For the past for days I have had a fever over 100 and my family has as well.
It is difficult to practice humility when it feels like my family is suffering unnecessarily. It is easier to give in to anger and frustration. As I was doing my morning prayers this morning I realized that humility is exactly what I need right now to help my family recover from this illness.
It was not the morning prayer that was important. It was the obedient morning prayer said from my heart that made the difference.
