Let's just talk about this. Are you humble because all your shoes have holes in them. Are you not humble because you drive a bentley. Are you humble because you say you are, is false humility depriving yourself of things in order to say "hey look at me, I'm deprived and that makes me humble"

I'm probably the most humble person here. Actually let me correct that. I AM the most humble person here. :eek:

lol.

On the real note, I think I suffer from some false humility because I am always willing to assist someone else in need but hardly able to receive help myself when I am in need. It almost gets to the point where I get ready to fight someone when they are trying to help me (clip from Barbershop come to mind: "Take the money" "No." "Take It!!" "No" *** runs away***).

hmmmph... I never paid attention to that. But really even though Moses wrote the first 5 books of the Bible, they were God inspired. So this is God's view of Moses not Moses' view of himself.

Paul may have been the most humble ever, aside from Jesus.

WHAT?! Man, when I was a shorty on the block, they used to call me HUMBLITO, cause I was so humble. Man, this dude came round giving out his own brand new clothes, tryin to see me on the humility tip, so I had to lay him down. I started taking homeless cats to the bank, and droppin $50s on 'em. Man, they started calling me Humblestiltskin after that. Youngins still tell stories about me, son.

from the "Strongest NASB Exhaustive Concordance"

Humility: (Greek) tapeinophrosune - lowliness of mind, humility:-humility of mind, self-abasement

also used as the Greek word "prautes" meaning gentleness:- consideration, humility, meekness


It's clear in scripture that humility is more of a mind state rather than a profession or something that can be demonstrated strictly by lacking something.

All I know is I've seen a lot of philly cats on some real stuff acting humble while fishing for compliments. They know their music is banging, but still they underplay themselves to let someone else exalt them...but their spirit is just fishing for that justification.

On some real stuff......true humility always gives honor to God and NEVER accepts it for self....

That's kind of funny. Hey is that a real verse in the Bible? Well Moses had scribes too so maybe one of his scribes wrote that in for him. I'm saying because somebody was writing about Moses after he died. So it could of been on of his scribes fam.

Back when I was on eHarmony.com (yeah, I'm a loser.....), I had a girl ask me this question:

On a scale of 1 to 10, how humble are you ?

I love that question because it made me examine myself. :)
