It’s no surprise that as Christians we have a different view of the world than other people. And one thing that God has been really putting on my heart is humility. Humility according to dictionary.com states “modest opinion or estimate of one's own importance, rank” or humble “having a feeling of insignificance, inferiority, subservience.” Jesus is known for His humility yet He did not deny or belittle the power and authority He had and His purpose to save the world. He was the greatest healer, greatest friend and greatest everything! He is and was perfect He did not try to say He was not important and that He didn’t know everything. His humility was about serving others. It is His character of humility he helps the needy and the poor.
Biblical humility is about serving. It is not about belittling yourself or the power you have from God. This kind of humility is grounded in the character of God, one example is seen in Psalm 113:4-9 when the Father stoops down to help the poor and needy. Another scripture on humility that has been speaking to me is Philippians 2:5-8 (NIV):
"In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross!"
This to me shows the servant heart that God wants for us and to keep us focused outward instead of our sinful fleshy tendency to look inward. He wants are thoughts to be focused more on others. Jesus was a servant and did not care about status and His personal needs He was concerned about others. I have listed some bible quotes to show some examples of God’s view of humility:
