While pride has always been condemned
by God, the Bible shows that humility is one trait that should be
characteristic of God's people. Those who are humble will be blessed
and exalted by God.
||Therefore whoever humbles himself
as this little child is the greatest in the
kingdom of heaven.
||And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.
||Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility , meekness, longsuffering;
||...Therefore He says: "God
resists the proud, But gives grace to the
humble." ...Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.
|1 Peter 5:5,6
||...Yes, all of you be submissive to one
another, and be clothed with humility, for
"God resists the proud, But gives grace to the
humble." Therefore humble yourselves under the
mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due
||with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing forbearance to one another in love (NASV)
||Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself;
||A man's pride will bring him low, But the humble in spirit will retain honor.
||By humility and the fear of the LORD Are riches and honor and life.
