Last night we had a great evening with some friends, discussing spirituality and various themes of the individual's spiritual growth.
Some of these themes regarded our own abasement, our weaknesses, our incapacity to manifest the virtues that God endowed us with and that shine forth from His Sun.
In one of the quote it talked about human beings being the only created thing that can in potential reflect all of God's attributes, whereas all the rest of creation is limited in their expression.
But one thing was interesting. We considered the virtue of humilty, and wondered if it is a virtue of God.
I am extremely interested in knowing what others think.
The group did not come to a conclusion, but we brought it down to two options (as if that was hard.. hehehe)
a) God is not Humble. It is the only virtue He does not need as He is above our realm and any other. He is the Creator. Hence we, creation, have been given a unique capacity to shine forth, our humility.
b) Man is in potential a mirror of God. He has all the virtues of God. Where does humility come from? It must be of God. And if God wanted to, Him being all powerul, He could be Humble beyond comprehension.
Interesting no? I researched and did not find any clear answer as of yet..
Do you have any interesting thoughts? Please comment!!
Where do you stand??
