01-21-2024 Sirach 10 V2829 Self-esteem enjoy with humility




The Book of Sirach Ch Ten v- 28 and 29


28 My son, with humility have self-esteem; and give yourself the esteem you deserve. 29 Who will acquit those who condemn themselves? Who will honor those who disgrace themselves?


By contemplating these questions, you may gain a deeper understanding of the consequences of self-condemnation or disgrace. This reflection might encourage you to acknowledge your own faults and mistakes, leading to self-acceptance and the desire for personal growth and improvement. It can help you develop compassion towards yourself and others who might be in similar situations. Meditating on these questions can make you realize the importance of seeking forgiveness and Redemption. It might motivate you to make amends for past actions or seek reconciliation with those you may have wronged. This process can bring about a sense of liberation and inner peace, allowing the soul to heal and move forward.


Contemplating these questions can foster empathy and understanding towards individuals who condemn or disgrace themselves. It can help you recognize that everyone has their own struggles and challenges, and instead of judgment or condemnation, they might require compassion and support. This mindset shift can have a positive impact on your relationships with others and contribute to a more harmonious society. Meditating on these questions may lead you to explore spiritual or philosophical teachings that address the concepts of forgiveness, Redemption, and honor. You might seek guidance from religious or ethical principles that offer a framework for understanding and responding to these dilemmas. This search for higher values can provide a sense of direction and purpose in life. Ultimately, the impact on your soul depends on your individual interpretation, beliefs, and the depth of your meditation practice. It can range from personal growth and transformation to a greater understanding of the human condition and the pursuit of virtues such as forgiveness, empathy, and honor. I penned a Haiku today to reflect on self-esteem and humility. Amen

Meekness Strength Haiku


In humble embrace,

Self-esteem blossoms brightly,

Strength found in meekness.


Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. The Lord’s Prayer.


At the Savior’s command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.


I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen Son in Law Mark Stern; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Our prayers for a little boy named David Alexander. Praise God thank You Jesus. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Self-esteem enjoy with humility**


Self-esteem enjoy with humility

Deserved esteem in yourself smell

If condemned who acquits their tranquility

Themselves disgraced honor who to hell
