Greatness from humility

It is humility that gives greatness;
Greatness comes from humility;
The humble best recognize the awesomness
Of the Almighty Creator;
And give him the glory he is due,
Reaping, therefrom, abundant rewards;
The haughty believe in their power alone
To achieve the success they desire;
The humble know
There is a God so mighty they are insignificant
In relation to him; 
The humble do not boast of their possessions,
They know everything they have 
Comes from an awesome Lord;
"What have you that you did  not receive?
If then you received it, why do you boast
As if it were not a gift?" (Cor. 4:7)
You were humble Mother Mary, the hand maid
Of the Lord,
And you were raised to become the mother
Of the Saviour of the World;
You were humble O Saint Joseph,
And you were made great,
Becoming the custodian of the Son of the Almighty;
Moses, the humble one was honoured
To be given the Ten Commandments;
Jesus Christ, God himself was humble
And came down on earth
Passing through the womb of a mere woman. 
Heed ye the words of Saint James,
"Humble yourself before the Lord 
And he will exalt you" ( James 4.10).
