Spiritual Exercise to Build a Perspective of Humility by Stephanie Kammerer

1. Recognize God's presence.
2. Ask God for what you most deeply desire.
3. Ask yourself: "What has God given me?"

Then go through the following lists slowly.

- God gave me myself; my hands, eyes, nose, taste, sounds, memories, appetites, dreams... (add to the list whatever occurs to you)
What was on God's mind when he gave me these gifts?

- God gave me the world: trees, wind, shadows, waves, mountains; snow, morning, evening... (add to the list)
What was on God's mind when he created these gifts for me?

- God gave me the universe: the moon, sun, stars... (travel as far into the universe as you can imagine)
What was on God's mind when he created these gifts for me?

- Notice how you feel when you picture all of creation as God's gift to you.
