Humility Helps

Key Verse

“Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble” (1 Peter 5:5).

Text — 1 Peter 5:3-6


Humility helps the humble and his community. Absence of it is a major cause of conflicts the world over. According to Gary L. Thomas, “Humility will become a passion for us when we realise that the more we put our own egos out of the way, the more the life and power and purpose of God can pass through us. When this happens, something glorious takes place. We get to experience the quality of eternal life without the taint of our own control and small ego demands.” This then is why God rejects the proud people and gives grace to the humble. Humility also involves knowing your limits and putting positive construction on the actions, intentions and perspectives of others.

Humility is not the same as having low self-esteem, fear or timidity.  It is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less. Humility is a mark of a true believer. The proud belong to Satan’s camp but the humble, the camp of the Lamb of God. Dear friend, are you humble and submissive? If not, you must be born again.


Humility is a mark of a true believer


You lack humility if you disrespect others.
