mourning, suffering hunger poverty are supposed to teach you humility, and as the scripture teaches us humility is the essential virtue, without which it is impossible to bear any good fruit at all. Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven ''Matthew 5:3''. most worldly people forget about the virtue of humility.once we acknowledge almightyness of God and the imperfection of man we can understand what humility means.people tend to forget all about God and are engrossed in pride and self centerdness once they have everything set and figured out &all is going good in their lives and that although seems to look on the outer level as a sign of happiness and succes it only leads to a spiritual voidness.Spiritual voidness leads man away from his creator, his only true source of happiness and contentment and away from faith, which in itself leads a man into misery. The self-sufficient proud man is in fact the most wretched one, because he is so blind he cannot even perceive his misery ''Revelation 3:17''.
the Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, is the greatest example of humility.
Who could ever be higher than Him ¨ the Creator of everything visible and invisible alike? And yet He was always the example of obedience towards His earthly parents, He was obedient towards the lay authorities, He paid taxes, and He meekly forgave His enemies. Striving towards humility, we are doing so in the steps of our Saviour, Who left us His commandment: Take My yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest
unto your souls ''Matthew 11:29''.
humility is the path that leads us to God.God is the ultimate source of happiness although we might not know that.For how many are the rich and succesful who have it all yet are so miserable in their lives that they have lost all sense of why they are born and whats the pourpose of life , that they are willing to let satan freely take control of their lives and lead them away from GodBy: Annie Goetcheryan
