A Gem of Reflection by Michael Paul Galagher SJ
It can be difficult for many of us to get a realistic grasp of ourselves. Some people are taught from a very young age that they must not be proud, and they think that humility means denying the gifts God has given them.
Others, perhaps feeling deeply unworthy on a personal level, are inclined to over-state their gifts, possibly failing to recognize the really valuable talents they have received.
Today’s reflection is designed to give you a more balanced picture of the gifts you have to offer the world.
