Jesus Is Humble

Pride says: “Don’t tell me anything. I already know it all.”

Humility says: “Thanks for your advice and help.”

Pride says: “I need, I want, I deserve.”

Humility says: “He needs, they want, you deserve.”

Pride criticizes others to tear them down.

Humility praises others in order to build them up.

Pride exalts himself but God resists him.

Humility humbles himself before God and God lifts him up.

Pride says: “I can do all things.”

Humility says: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Pride says: “I want to be served.”

Humility said: “I did not come to be served but to serve and to give my life as a ransom for many.”

Pride says: “Look what I did.”

Humility says: “See what God has done in me!”

Pride stood in the streets and shouted: “Crucify him! He became more popular than we are.”

Humility, hanging on the cross, looked upward and prayed: “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”

Pride seeks the glory but does not find it.

Humility receives glory and honor from others without seeking it.
