The bible has much to say about being humble or humility. Just a couple of verses are

II Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. or

I Peter 5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.

But what does humble actually mean or how do we be humble. We are suppose to be humble, but how can we truly be humble if we don't really know what it means or understand the meaning of being humble. The dictionary gives the definition as "not proud or arrogant".Thats an okay definition but I have always wanted a better one to make the scriptures come alive more about being humble.

I am reading another book(I finished the last one) by Donna Partow "Let Your Life Count" and she gave the best definition of humble that I have ever heard.

"Humility isn't thinking less of yourself, it's thinking or yourself less." WOW(As Bro. Tim Gilliam says).

I don't know about you but this spoke volumes to me on what being humble meant and now I can better apply the scriptures to my life because I understand this 6 let word better. I trust you will see the scriptures differently that reference humble or humility as I have with our new definition.

It's All About HIM

I love that verse from 2 Chronicles. It's som very simple. But then again, most of our life would be more simple if we would humble ourselves. Thanks for posting that.
