It is not surprising to find those who walk humbly with God, humble before their fellows.
Dr. G. Scroggie says: "I stayed with Handley Moule, Bishop of Durham, at Lochlan Castle. I never saw more wonderful unselfishness & humility.
General William Booth (the founder of The Salvation Army) stayed overnight & when he got home from the meeting the Bishop put him in the easiest chair in the drawing room & knelt down & took off General Booth's shoes, carried them away & got his slippers.
And all was done so naturally - no pride, no selfishness & no desire to maintain his dignity, though he did not lose any of it by getting on his knees."

1 Pet 5:5 (CEV): "All of you young people should obey your elders. In fact, everyone should be humble toward everyone else. The Scriptures say, 'God opposes proud people, but he helps everyone who is humble'.”
“Every Christian has a choice between being humble or being humbled." - Charles Spurgeon.
