Individual humility also rests on the truth that we alone can do so very little. As part of a movement, we depend on each other. As members of our families, we need each other. Reinhold Niebuhr famously said: “Nothing that is worth doing can be achieved in our lifetime; therefore, we must be saved by hope. Nothing which is true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; therefore, we are saved by faith. Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone; therefore, we are saved by love.”
Use this quotation today as a prayer.
