An Attitude Of Humility!

Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honor is humility. (Prov. 18:12) 

Humility is not how you dress, it is not the money you make, it is not where you live, it's not what you drive, it is not even how you look. We're never once commanded by God to "look" humble. Humility is an attitude. It is an attitude of the heart. An attitude of the mind. It is knowing your proper place. Never talking down or looking down because someone may be of a financial level less than yours. It is knowing your role and fulfilling it for God's glory and praise. I repeat, it is an attitude. . . . 

The attitude Christ had, who emptied Himself of the voluntary and independent use of His divine attributes. There is no quality more god-like than humility. . . . 

The place of highest exaltation, as we see in the Lord Jesus Christ, is a place of self-emptying humility. It's not a phony-baloney style of fake piety. It's true humility of mind. It's putting the other person first. . . . It is being like Christ.

I have made numerous posts on this subject and have even made a series on humility as well. I will post the links to the series of humility at the end of this post. In the meantime, it's extremely important to recognize the importance of humility in living out our Christian lives. 

As Christians, humility must play the most prevalent role in our lives because it is out of the root of humility that all the fruits of the spirit come from. If you lack humility, ask God to instill that that virtue in you. I love the way the above devotional puts it. Humility is an ATTITUDE. Humility is very elusive, even among those who claim to be Christian.
