Humble Heart

2:24:00 PM
Humility. It is a quality that many people desire, though it takes effort. The opposite of humility is pride. I can be prideful at times, which means I am not being humble. A humble appearance is achieved when someone knows when to talk and when to be silent. But, humility is much more than appearance. It is having an apologetic attitude when necessary, along with a forgiving one. This is hard. Sometimes those we need to forgive don’t seem sorry. It’s hard to forgive in those instances. Humility comes from your heart. Being sorry, forgiving, and compassion all start in your heart and mind. True inward humility shows outwardly, consistently. An example of Biblical humility is not thinking of yourself higher than others. Humility is important because if there were no humility, there would be no compassion. Humility is also important, because as humans we will sin, and to be truly repentant requires a humble heart. Without a humble attitude, we will struggle again and again, blinded by pride. Humility is a quality that comes with God’s help. Asking for God’s help is easy, and He will cultivate humility in the heart that truly desires to follow Him.

Proverbs 18:12 “Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.”
