Humility isn’t a very popular word. Yet, throughout the Bible, the Lord instructs us about the benefits of being “humble-minded.” I love James 4:6. It says, God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble (ESV). In other words, the humble get the help!
I believe humility is often misunderstood and even viewed as a weakness. But it’s the exact opposite. Humility places us in a position to receive God’s grace and become everything He’s called us to be.
A humble person is also a happy person and generally filled with joy. They can take joy in their life and what God has called them to do, regardless of what the world thinks about it.
For instance, you may think your current circumstances and responsibilities are mundane. The proud person always wants to do something they think the world will admire…something others see as “important.” But the truth is we don’t have to do something important to be important.
We are important because God loves and values us. Our worth comes from Him. As we receive His love and find our true worth as His children, then we can truly enjoy our purpose in life and live in contentment.
So many people are miserable, constantly comparing themselves to others who they view as smarter, prettier, or more successful. But a person with a humble attitude can be happy with who they are.
