sitting at Jesus’ feet

Somehow talking to those much wiser than me
reveals how my “well-thought out” ideas 
are actually very juvenile –

like a child who thinks his first portrait
is like Rembrandt’s,
or his first tune is like Mozart’s –

but this is all part of growing in wisdom,
and I would rather keenly feel
how stupid I am –
and cherish with joy
each morsel of instruction
presented to me.

The fear of the LORD is the
instruction of wisdom;
and before honour is humility.

(Proverbs 15:33)

For humility,
to know my frailty and
my ignorance,

to know how much I need guidance
and to rely on God.
