2 Chronicles 16:9 (NLT)

A sinful, arrogant, haughty, self-reliant attitude or spirit that causes a person to have an inflated or puffed up view of themselves. Those who are proud think of themselves as better than others and look down on others with contempt
Seeing ourselves as we truly are, fallen in sin and helpless without God. Humility is often characterized as genuine gratitude, a lack of arrogance, and a modest view of one’s self.

Philippians 2:19-22 ESV
I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you soon, so that I too may be cheered by news of you. For I have no one like him, who will be genuinely concerned for your welfare.

3. Humble People Love

John 13:34-35 (ESV)

Romans 12:6-8 (NLT)
In His grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.
