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.)
