The following are passages that remind us of what God wants us to think about ourselves and how we should choose to relate to each other. There are big benefits from resisting pride and adopting humility, and they directly impact us individually and all those around us!
12 Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. 13 Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.
Colossians 3:12-13 (NLT)
3 Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. 4 Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. 5 You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. 6 Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. 7 Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being.
Philippians 2:3-7 (NLT)
1 Remind the believers to submit to the government and its officers. They should be obedient, always ready to do what is good. 2 They must not slander anyone and must avoid quarreling. Instead, they should be gentle and show true humility to everyone.
Titus 3:1-2 (NLT)
If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom.
James 3:13 (NLT)
Pride leads to disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.
Proverbs 11:2 (NLT)
Fear of the LORD teaches wisdom; humility precedes honor.
Proverbs 15:33 (NLT)
True humility and fear of the LORD lead to riches, honor, and long life.
Proverbs 22:4 (NLT)
