Be humble and gain honor..
Posted On 08/27/2014 23:05:00 by PastorZomok

Before destruction a man's heart is haughty, but humility comes before honor.--Proverbs 18:12

In the scriptures being humble and exhibiting humility did not mean a weak pushover but instead indicated someone who is not conceited and a self-absorbed worshiper of self.   God resists such a selfish soul because they are thinking too much about their own power or might.  They are less inclined at helping others.  God gives grace to and exalts the humble at the right time (1 Peter 5:6).

Don't be overly focused on your own needs but consider others too...  These are good thoughts..

I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys.--Song of Songs 2:1

Some use this phrase to represent humility, which I find interesting, hence the quick painting below.  The rose of Sharon was probably a crocus as I pictured below on the right.  At any rate God wants his people to exhibit all the beautiful traits of Christ.  One of these is being humble.  It is a gift of the spirit according to Galatians 5.
