He mocks proud mockers but gives grace to the humble.
– Proverbs 3:34 (NIV)
But he gives us more grace. That is why scripture says: “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble”.
– James 4:6 (NIV)
Pride makes us self-centered and leads us to conclude that we deserve all we can see, touch, or imagine. It creates greedy appetites for far more than we need. We can be released from our self-centered desires by humbling ourselves before God, realizing that all we need is his approval. When the Holy Spirit fills us, we see that this world’s attractions are only cheap substitutions for what God has to offer.
Again, great advise and scripture regarding humbleness. Both Proverbs and James offer great verses that proves a (genuine) humble attitude will also help us become the person that God would love to bless.
