In this wisdom moment, we share the importance of humility.
“Before a downfall the heart is haughty, but humility comes before honor.” Proverbs 18:12
It is important for us to take a prerequisite before a man falls. We can look at what took place to make them fall and know what we can prevent in our own lives or the lives of others to stop us from falling.
It is also important for us to have someone in our lives who can point out to us when we are walking in pride because pride is blinding. Pride is defined as an inordinate opinion and an intense self-awareness of yourself. It is when we begin to take our own counsel above God’s or over other people. Walking in pride will always lead to a downfall. It is important to realize that we need God in everything we do because we do not know everything.
How do we humble ourselves? Jesus said, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.” Humility is defined as a total dependency on God and a love for other people. When we throw ourselves into the things of God and trust God with our lives, then honor comes. We want to hear from you! You can write to us at [email protected].
