Humility is a correct understanding of where we stand in relation to God.
It does not mean we are supposed to live as a door mat. It’s walking confidently in who God is and who he made us to be. He is always on the throne and we are a part of his kingdom.
Let’s quit it with the compliment-ducking, shame-inducing, condemning idea that to have humility means we must always think poorly of ourselves.
Here are a few things I know:
God has given me value.
I am not God but I am a child of God and made in his image.
I am only human but I am a temple of the Holy Spirit.
I am broken but redeemed-
dead in my sin but alive in Christ.
I am often mistaken but never a mistake.
False humility is really pride in disguise. Throw it away. True humility will never result in condemnation and shame but will always end in a thankful heart and the worship of God.
