A Matter of Humility


Some people don’t like this word ‘humility’ as it may conjure up a sign of weakness, not realizing that humility in itself is a strength.

Here’s one definition I gleaned from the Internet: Humility is the quality of being humble and means putting the needs of another person before your own, and thinking of others before yourself. It also means not drawing attention to yourself, and it can mean acknowledging that you are not always right.

Here is the Bible’s take on humility:

Philippians 2: 3-11 : Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.

 Luke 14: 11 : For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.

1 Peter 5:6 : Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you…

James 4:10: Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.

Matthew 5:5 “Blessed are the humble, for they shall inherit the earth.

Happy Sunday.
