CONCERNING HUMILITY

THE BIBLE SAYS…

Compiled by Daniel L Wakefield

 

·         Proverbs 22:4                By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, and honour, and life.

 

·         Proverbs 29:23                         A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.

 

·         Isaiah 57:15                    For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

 

·         Micah 6:8                        He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

 

·         Matthew 18:4                 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

 

·         Luke 14:10-11                But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee. For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

 

·         Colossians 3:12-13      Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; 13Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.

 

 

·         Philippians 2:3-8           Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. 4Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. 5Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

 

·         James 4:10                     Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

 

·         1 Peter 5:5                      Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
