“When pride comes, then comes dishonor, but with the humble is wisdom.” Proverbs 11:2 NASB1995
I read a blog about heroic humility that described the “(vision) of heroic humility — humility of such great depth that it inspires others. Humility has three parts: an honest self-appraisal (including an attitude that one is teachable), modest self-presentation, and an orientation to build others up and not put them down.” This chapter of Proverbs speaks to this type of humility. I am most in awe of the truly capable and impressive people who live this type of humility. I want to be around them and I desire to be like them. It is not natural. This type of humility only comes from a proper view of God but also involves a correct view of ourselves as His creation. We come to understand that whatever we accomplish is a result of Him creating and writing our story. We understand that on our best day we are but a hint of His greatness and a reflection of Him in us. That blesses us, brings us joy, and keeps us humble. Today, be all God created you to be and celebrate that it is Him in you that the world gets to encounter. #BeTheEdge
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.” Philippians 2:3–4
