[Top] 40+Bible Verses About Pride And Humility – KJV Scripture

Dear friends, pride and humility are opposing forces that shape our character. Pride leads us to think more highly of ourselves than we ought, making us self-centered and causing us to look down on others. In contrast, humility recognizes our failings and limitations, leading us to esteem others above ourselves.

The Bible warns that pride goes before destruction. When we are prideful, we stop relying on God and make ourselves the center of our universe. This arrogance blinds us to our faults and misguides our steps. However, God resists the proud and gives grace to the humble.

Humility recognizes that all we have comes from God. With humility, we acknowledge our dependence on Him, seeking His will above our own. This mindset values others and considers their needs as more important than our own. It enables us to serve joyfully, without needing recognition or praise.

The proud mind fixates on status, promotions, and the esteem of others. But the humble heart finds contentment in lifting up Christ, not self. It is not occupied with self-importance, but focused on eternal priorities.

Dear friends, may we reflect Christlike humility in our words, thoughts and actions. Let us esteem others, consider their interests, and point them toward our gracious Savior.
