Humility Exalts God

“Meister Eckhart also said: Humility exalts God and the more I have it, the more He is exalted and the more gently and sweetly His divine influence and gifts flow into me. That God is exalted by humility, I argue thus: the more I abase myself, the higher God rises above me. Humility is like a well. The deeper the well the higher He will stand who stands on the top. Similarly, the deeper I dig down into humility the more exalted God becomes and the more gently and sweetly His divine influence pours into me. That is why I must exalt God by humility.” —–An excerpt from the book, “Meister Eckhart” by Raymond B. Blakney
