Humility

"Seek the LORD, all you humble of the land, you who do what he commands. Seek righteousness, seek humility; perhaps you will be sheltered on the day of the LORD's anger." Zephaniah 2:3


We should not become full of pride, but instead-- we should be humble. Why is it so easy to become proud? Why is it that we as humans want and seemingly need attention? Humility is a subject that I find I often need to work on.

Nothing sets a person so much out of the devil's reach as humility.
~Jonathan Edwards~

Humility is the way for us to open communication with the merciful God of heaven. It is far better to pray in a private "room," be unseen by man, and have the approval of God than to give a public display of prayer and have a heart full of pride.
