flexibility as a sign of humility

Here’s a wee monday morning thought for you to chew on:

Flexibility is a sign of humility.

Why is flexibility a sign of humility or even a pathway to humility? Because flexibility is an indicator of your willingness to not be right!

When a situation arises that calls for me to be flexible and consider change, and I am not open to it, it reveals that I think my original plan is better than any modification might be. But if I ask God to grow my humility, I also gain the ability to be more flexible, and to hold loosely to my plans, thoughts, conclusions and ideas.

(Remember, this thought has an obvious corollary: inflexibility is a sign of arrogance.)

    We would like to use the spring image featured on your homepage.
    This would be to illustrate the flexibility that our software program offers to the users.

    It would be a great help if you could indicate the procedure to obtain a permission of use and information about royalties for that picture.

    Thank you in advance,
