Humility’s Enlightenment (Part One)

Carmelo Caparros

Mankind can be compared to TWO MEN wandering in the DESERT. Both are dying of thirst and are in search for water.

One THINKS that he sees a RIVER in the desert and makes a run for it and then dives. But what seemed like a RIVER from a DISTANCE was just a MIRAGE and he falls flat on his face on BURNING SAND. Yet he insists that he really saw a RIVER. This man represents a man who thinks he has found the answers to life BUT finds himself burned by a MIRAGE his mind has created.

The other one finds a WELLSPRING, a knowledge he acquired from someone in that vicinity. Through this knowledge, his quench is thirst. His body is cooled and refreshed and he is reinvigorated to move on. This represents a man who in HUMILITY was willing to rely on someone more knowledgeable than him – that is Christ – and the result is a wellspring that leads to eternal life
