Article by Pat Marriott Humility is a quality of being courteously respectful of others. Humility shows no aggression, arrogance, boastfulness, or vanity. It lets us go more than halfway to meet the needs of others. To be humble (humility), is not a sign of weakness, nor denying your self-worth, but rather it affirms your self-worth.
Humility is a virtue with major themes in the Old and New Testaments. Just like charity, it is not puffed up and seeks no evil (I Corinthian 13:4 and Proverbs 27:1-2) Humility will gain us much more than we sacrifice (Matthew 23:11-12). A demeanor of humility is exactly what is needed to live in peace and harmony with all persons.
Humility not only scatters, consumes, and vanishes anger, it heals wounds. We are commanded to love one another and not stir hostility (John 15:17). You are to love your neighbor as yourself (Leviticus 19:18). It allows us to see the dignity and worth of all God's people. For in so doing, the Lord blesses with riches and honor and life.
God tells us to be subject one to another, and to be clothed with humility; for God resists the proud and gives grace to the humble. If you will humble yourself under the mighty hand of God, He will exalt you in due time. (I Peter 5:6).
Humility is the tool that allows us to be on good terms with all persons is we desire to be fulfilled in our lives; knowing that God created us for His purpose, His glory, and His pleasure (Revelation 4:11)
Wear humility everyday of the year, it becomes you!
