The Power of Humility 

by Berni Dymet     

Prov. 29:23 A man's pride brings him low, but a man of lowly spirit gains honor.

We all know people who - to put it bluntly - are full of themselves. They throw their weight around and stomp over the top of people. And here's the thing - they do it under the delusion that somehow - this makes them better than everybody else. They believe this lie that everyone looks up to them and thinks, "Wow - isn't he great" or "Boy, isn't she fantastic."

But let me ask you something - when you've had to deal with someone who's proud and arrogant - full of themselves- what's been your reaction to them? Are they the ones you respect and look up to? I don't think so. They're the ones we try to avoid.

In a strange sort of a twist, the people we really respect … are the humble ones. The people who put themselves last. The one who walks into the room and instead of saying "Here I am", they look around and they say, "Ah - there you are."

They're the ones that we want to honor: The humble ones.
