Humility

Humility is grounded in the Spirit of Lord. Matthew 5:8 says, “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.” Humility is not a false sense. Humility is reverence for God in a child like manner. Jesus said "expect you come as a dear little child you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven."

Humility requires sincerity and honesty; qualifications that include fearlessness, purity of mind, Spiritual wisdom, charity, self-control, nonviolence, truthfulness, freedom from anger, compassion for others, gentleness, modesty, steady determination, vigor, forgiveness, fortitude, inner cleanliness, freedom from envy, and honor God's will. The Lord exalts the humble this pleases God.

Christ has set us an example of humility

Prayer

Heavenly Father, cloth me forever with the cloak of humility covering me always in Jesus Name AMEN.
