“REALLY A FUTILE DESIRE”

“Why is it so necessary for some people to look important, feel important, act important?  Why is being important sometimes more important than being what you are?

Every human being is important to God and to other people.  It’s just a matter of how one handles daily living, daily responsibilities, daily habits, daily chores, daily personal needs, daily dealings with other people, daily acts of charity, daily Spiritual acts of love.

To so many people, the only way they can recognize that they look important is to be in the forefront, to be treated special, to be constantly sought out, to be the recipient of praise, or to have material wealth that shows success.

Real people, really important people, rarely feel important.  It isn’t necessary because they are too busy, too occupied, or too humble to care.

ASK YOURSELF:

How important do I really feel?

What importance do I place on my looking important?

What makes others feel that I want to be important?

A good way to prove your humility is to say, ‘I don’t know,’ when you really don’t know the answer or the facts. Now you are important because of your honesty.”
