- Humility uses its strengths to serve others, for their benefit and blessing. Confidently identify your strengths, resources, gifts. Be clear about what you have.
- Reflect on your relationships, your employer, your church: are you using them only for your own gain, or do you seek their well-being and prosperity?
- What will you do this week to prosper and bless a friend, your employer, and your church?
Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard
If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honourable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom.
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart
Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist.
John W. Ritenbaugh: meekness is the opposite of self-will toward God and of ill-will toward men.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
Work for the peace and prosperity of the city where I sent you into exile.
