A person who is humble before God realizes the greatness of God and his own smallness. He gives himself up entirely to God’s Will. When we give our will over to His, God fills our hearts with joy.

  1. As I looked at the topic of this lesson and then read through it, I thought it might be better titled “Humility” especially as it seems to correspond to the Ruhi lesson on that topic.

    • You’re absolutely right Alisa—it seems we gave this lesson the wrong title (oops!) It’s fixed now. Thanks for pointing it out!
