Humble

DSCF2788

The eminently humble Christian is as it were clothed with lowliness, mildness, meekness, gentleness of spirit and behavior, and with a soft, sweet, condescending winning air and deportment; these things are just like garments to him, he is clothed all over with them. Pure Christian humility has no such thing as roughness, or contempt, or fierceness, or bitterness in its nature; it makes a person like a little child, harmless and innocent, that none need to be afraid of; or like a lamb, destitute of all bitterness, wrath, anger, and clamor.

                                                                                    — Jonathan Edwards

All of you, dress yourselves in humility as you relate to one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. (1 Peter 5:5-6, NLT)

God is attracted to weakness. He can’t resist those who humbly and honestly admit how desperately they need him. — Jim Cymbala

As God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. (Colossians 3:12, NIV)

True humility and fear of the Lord lead to riches, honor, and long life. (Proverbs 22:4, NLT)
