The conceptual philosophy of life depict that there is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self. The soul is healed by being with children. On the highest throne in the world, we still sit only on our own bottom. True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.
However, it will only take humiliation in order to teach one the virtue of humility. The thing is, no matter how smart, successful and good looking or special you are, nobody likes a braggart, nobody likes arrogance, nobody likes cockiness. Its really important to practice humility to develop into a better leader and a better person because humility and vulnerability makes us more likable.
Moreover, humility is nothing but truth and pride is nothing but lying, so pride must die in us, or nothing of heaven can live in us. Remember, the proud man can learn humility and still be proud of it. But the greatest friend of truth is time, her greatest enemy is prejudice while her companion will be humility. Pride makes us artificial while humility makes us real.
Alluding to the biblical stance 2 chronicles 7: 12, the bible avers that “if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land”. Humility is the opposite of pride, and as individuals here, we are called to live humbly. But what does humble living really mean? Is humility thinking poorly about yourself ? Being humble is an attitude.
Conclusively, there should be the understanding that true humility is not thinking less of yourself rather it’s about thinking of yourself less. Knowing that there is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man because true nobility is being superior to your former self. Being humble is an attitude. Cultivate, erect and intensify it.
Blessed week !
