Humility: The Greatest Virtue

“For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.” Romans 12:3

It does not look like God is worried about low self esteem, low self worth or low self love.

We have grown up in generations where pride is a virtue.

Whereas the Bible teaches:

“Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” Proverbs 16:18

“There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him:” Proverbs 6:16

“He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil.” 1 Timothy 3:6

Pride is an evil.

Humility is the greatest virtue.
