But when his heart became arrogant and hardened with pride, he was deposed from his royal throne and stripped of his glory. - Daniel 5:20
"HUMILITY" God's Word has much to say about humility. Jesus preached a combination of love, compassion, humility, and yes, even BOLDNESS, when referring to the Gospel of Salvation! ... but humility when referring to our relationship one to another!
As I look at this word humility, I am reminded of the words of the apostle Peter recorded in 1 Peter 5:5. "Young men, in the same way be submissive to those who are older. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, 'God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.'"
It's frightening to think of going through life pushing against something you can't budge. God resists the proud. And I'm sure we'd agree that when a person has God resisting Him, he's in for a hard struggle. So we each have a choice. Do we want to struggle through life, fighting God in our pride and arrogance, or do we want to go through life in the enabling power of His grace, experiencing His love, mercy, power, and blessing?
"Lord, keep me from a haughty spirit; I desire to walk humbly with You. Amen. "
The same God who resists the proud pours out His grace to the humble.
