Moved by the Holy Spirit, the writer of Proverbs wrote, The highway of the upright is to depart from evil; He who keeps his way preserves his soul. Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, Than to divide the spoil with the proud. He who heeds the word wisely will find good, And whoever trusts in the LORD, happy is he (Proverbs 16:17-20).
True humility is a rare bird. It is on the endangered species list in our day. Many people talk about it and admire it, but few actually practice it.
