The Torah tells us to be humble, but shouldn’t we have a good self esteem?
Should we neglect our real talents in pursuit of humility?
How do we balance maintaining a healthy self esteem and modesty?
The Torah tells us that being humble means viewing your talents not as privilege, but as obligation.
If you have a talent, that means more is expected of you. You have a duty to realize your potential.
You don’t have a right to not use your gifts.
If you feel your gifts obligate you, that is humility
