Bible Verses About Humility to Help You Be a Humble and Obedient Person
The Lord, “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. Read these selected Bible verses about humility below and they will sh0w you the way to be a humble and obedient person.
When men are cast down, then you shall say, There is lifting up; and He shall save the humble person.
You did cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still,
Jehovah lifts up the meek: He casts the wicked down to the ground.
The fear of Jehovah is the instruction of wisdom; and before honor is humility.
Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honor is humility.
By humility and the fear of Jehovah are riches, and honor, and life.
For thus said the high and lofty One that inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
Take My yoke on you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest to your souls.
Whoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
1 Peter 5:5
Likewise, you younger, submit yourselves to the elder. Yes, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resists the proud, and gives grace to the humble.
