Enemies of our soul: False humility

The enemies of our soul are out to destroy us, to keep us from being all we can be as lights in a dark world, and to keep us from living successful, victorious lives as children of the Most High God. False humility is common in our world, and often unrecognized, just as are all or at least most of the others, by those who need to expel them.

I’ve discussed pride, and false humility is often equated to pride. Pride comes in many forms. Wealthy people can be proud of their wealth, but poor people can likewise be proud of their poverty. People can even be proud of their humility. Have you heard someone say something like, “I’m just a poor, humble _____.” This is a type of pride, and it is also a false humility. Think about it. True humility would not say that, because true humility would not think that way. A person with true humility would not be thinking about him/herself at all.

Rather than write about false humility, I direct your attention to a website that says it better than I can. You can find it here.

The Apostle Paul says, Don’t do anything from selfish ambition or from a cheap desire to boast, but be humble toward one another, always considering others better than yourselves.  And look out for one another’s interests, not just for your own.  The attitude you should have is the one that Christ Jesus had. Philippians 2:3-5
