When pride comes, then comes shame; But with the humble is wisdom. (Proverbs 11:2 NKJV)

Being humble does not require us to push ourselves down or to put the needs of everyone else before our needs. True humility comes in understanding who we are in God's eyes. We are His children, His friends and His beloved through faith.

When we start to believe that we are who God says we are then we no longer feel the need to lift ourselves up with our own power. In due season God will lift us up according to His will and His purpose. We can never lift ourselves to the heights that He has for us because in Him we stand on the foundation of His infinite love.

The pedestals of our own creations are destined to crumble and fall but His love will last forever. Lets rest in His love.
