A man’s pride will bring him low,
But the humble in spirit will retain honor.
Proverbs 29:23 NKJV
Do others see pride in you?
You hear some people say, “Perception is everything.” What they are really saying is, “I want people to see me a certain way, in a way that makes me look good.” And some add, “… that makes me look humble.”
Noah Webster says that to be humble is to be “lowly; modest; meek; submissive; opposed to proud, haughty, arrogant or assuming. In an evangelical sense, having a low opinion of one’s self, and a deep sense of unworthiness in the sight of God.”
Do we see ourselves this way? How do you think God sees you? What would you ask God to change in your life today? Did you just ask Him?
