We are reminded in the Bible to be humble people who place others before ourselves. Each morning we are to "clothe ourselves" with a proper attitude of service, compassion, kindness, love, patience, etc. This is what we do as God's children.
Colossians 3:12 reads, "Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience."
Why is it important to be humble? Because this is a person that God can lead and guide. A prideful person wants to do things his or her own way. A humble heart is open to being taught. A prideful heart is closed off to God and others.
[God] guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way. (Psalm 25:9)
You don't have to come from humble beginnings to be humble. Humility is a heart choice. What attitude have you put on today?
