He guides the humble in what is right
and teaches them His way. Psalm 25:9 (NIV)
David tells us something we all should remember. God guides the humble, as opposed to the. prideful. Humility is a quality when seen in a person allows others to look beyond that person to God. The opposite of humility is pride.
Several years ago in the Sunday school class we were in, the class discussion was on being humble. One of the other women told the story, sort of a joke, of a man who was “The most humble man he knew. And he was proud of that fact.” We all groaned but we got the picture. The man in question had little idea of humility.
God leads us through the quagmire of our lives and into the right way to live our lives. He tried to reach humanity through the patriarchs, then with prophets. Finally He sent His only Son to us to show us the way to live.
My later thoughts:
Humility is an emotion that goes against human nature. A person has to learn to be humble. In 2 Chronicles 7:14, God tells us to “humble” ourselves, “Seek My face”, and then “pray.” Our first order of business when we approach God’s throne is to remember who we are in light of Who He is.
