Walk the way of humility

Venerable John Climacus ~ The Ladder of Divine Ascent
Step 25 ~ On Humility

¶58. The Master, knowing that the virtue of the soul is modeled on outward behavior, took a towel and showed us how to walk the way of humility. For the soul becomes like its bodily occupations. It conforms itself to its activities and takes its shape from them. Authority served as a ground for arrogance for one of the angels, although that was not why it was conferred on him.
