And the Rest of the Quote.....

"To practice poverty of spirit calls us not to take offense or be supersensitive to criticism. The majority of hurts in our lives, the endless massaging of the latest bruise to our wounded ego, feelings of anger, grudges, resentment and bitterness come from our refusal to embrace our abject poverty, our obsession with our rights, our need for esteem in the eyes of others.
If I follow the counsel of Jesus and take the last place, I won’t be shocked when others put me there too."

-Brennan Manning
