Chapter 7 - Third Step of Humility

The third step of humility is that we submit to the prioress/abbot in all obedience for the love of God, imitating Jesus Christ of whom the apostle says: “Christ became obedient even to death (Phil 2:8).” (RB 7:34)

Am I willing to live a life of obedience for the love of God?

Do I seek out new information so that my perspective can change?

How well do I really listen to others?

For Benedict obedience is a life-time of listening.
