Where there is deep humility thither comes the Holy Spirit
"Humility is not weakness or avoidance of conflict. It enables us to respond to a situation without becoming the central feature. It extends our vision beyond ourselves and our needs to a resolution that reconciles and serves all concerned. By withdrawing from self-assertion, humility makes honest communication possible. When we let go of our desire to be in charge Of claim superiority we make it possible for God's spirit to be present in a relationship or action in a way that would not have been possible otherwise. 'Where there is deep humility thither comes the Holy Spirit; when the grace of the worshipful spirit comes, the person under its influence is filled with all purity.'" . . . purity is not the result of your own efforts to overcome sinfulness. Purity is demonstrated in letting go of your self-assertion toward God and other people.
