A man can counterfeit love, he can counterfeit faith, he can counterfeit hope & all the other graces, but it is very difficult to counterfeit humility.
You soon detect mock humility. They have a saying among the Arabs that as the tares & the wheat grow they show which God has blessed.
The ears that God has blessed bow their heads & acknowledge every grain & the more fruitful they are the lower their heads are bowed.
The tares lift up their heads erect, high above the wheat, but they are only fruitful of evil.
If we only get down low enough, God will use us to His glory.
- D. L. Moody (moreillustrations.com)
Pro 18:12 (ERV): “A proud person will soon be ruined, but a humble person will be honored.”
“The only humility that is really ours is not that which we try to show before God in prayer, but that which we carry with us in our daily conduct. - Andrew Murray.
“The best definition of humility I ever heard was this - to think rightly of ourselves.” - Charles Spurgeon.
