Proverbs 3:34—– Surely he scorneth the scorners; but he giveth grace unto the lowly. James 4:6b— God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the lowly. [ humble]
Proverbs 18:12; 29:23——- Honor shall uphold the humble in spirit.
Col. 3:12——- Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; 13/ Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
Humility according to the Scriptures:
1 Peter 5:5,6 ——— Followers of Christ are to be clothed in humility. [ not a proud spot showing ]
Ephesians 4:1,2—– We are to walk with humility.
Colossians 2:18,23– Be on the look out for false humility!
” What makes humility so desirable is the marvelous thing it does to us, it creates in us a capacity for the closest possible intimacy with God.” —– Monica Baldwin
