Two similar but very different words are "humble" and "humility".
To be humble strikes of Dickens and Uriah Heap who claimed to be "very 'umble", but was actually very proud of his humbleness.
Humility is altogether different, being about acceptance not pride. It is about giving of ourselves, being prepared not always to be right, accepting God's will for our lives, allowing him to take control and giving him the glory. This is what Jesus did during his time in the wilderness, and it seems to me that it is a worthwhile way of living for us to work towards during Lent.
