God's Will is Humility

God desires humility in our lives. In fact, He promises exaltation to the one who is humble. Luke 14:11 says, "For whoever exalts himself will be abased, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.

Since humility is required for entrance into God's family (Mat.5:3), and to receive God's Word (Jas.1:21), let's "draw near to God" (Jas.4:8) and "humble" ourselves "in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up" (Jas.4:10).

To help you more with this subject, I recommend C.J. Mahaney's excellent book, "Humility: True Greatness" and Stuart Scott's booklet, "From Pride to Humility." Both can be purchased from Grace Books International or your favorite Christian bookstore.
