Bible Verses About Humility to Help You Be a Humble and Obedient Person

The Lord Jesus said, “Whoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:4). Humble people are the people of the heavenly kingdom and the ones who inherit God’s promises and blessings. Because they are willing to seek the truth and obey God when encountering things. Like Nathaniel, for example. Before he met the Lord Jesus, he had conceptions about the Lord, but he could humble himself to seek, and thus welcomed the Messiah and gained the Lord’s salvation. On the contrary, God detests proud people and He condemns and eliminates such people, because they are arrogant and do not like the truth. Just like the earliest Pharisees, in the matter of welcoming the Messiah, they resisted and condemned the Lord based on their own arrogant and egotistical disposition instead of humbly seeking and investigating. Finally, they ended up being cursed and punished by God. Obviously, only humble people can keep themselves from walking the wrong path and doing things that resist God and offend God’s disposition.
