A philosophical quote says, “Humility is the solid foundation of all the virtues.”
The problem is that egos most often overcome our humility. We must guard against the one and strive for the other.
King Solomon reminds us, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” (Proverbs 3: 34)
Peter, the disciple of Christ, speaks to us saying, “clothe yourselves with humility toward one another.” (I Peter 5:5)
In a more direct way, Jesus commanded humility. He said, “For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” (Luke 14: 11)
