Scriptures on "Humility"
Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. (James 4:10)
This is the one I esteem: He who is humble and contrite in spirit, and trembles at my word. (Isaiah 66:2)
For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted. (Luke 14:11)
He chose the lowly things of this world and the
despised things - and the things that are not - to nullify the things
that are, so that no one may boast before him.
So neither he who plants nor he who waters is
anything, but only God, who makes things grow.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain
conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.
Honor one another above yourselves. (Romans 12:10)
All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, "God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble." (1 Peter 5:5)
For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ
as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake.
So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, "We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty." (Luke 17:10)
Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. (Philippians 2:5-7)
Humility and fear of the LORD bring wealth and honor and life. (Proverbs 22:4)
You save the humble but bring low those whose eyes are haughty. (Psalm 18:27)
But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy great peace. (Psalm 37:11)
