Humility

“…humility is not how you dress, it is not the money you make, it is not where you live, it’s not what you drive, it is not even how you look. We’re never once commanded by God to ‘look’ humble. Humility is an attitude of the mind. It is knowing your proper place. Never talking down or looking down because someone may be of a financial level less than yours. It is knowing your role & fulfilling it for God’s glory and praise. I repeat, it is an attitude. ‘Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus’ (Phil 2:5)."

- Charles R. Swindoll, Esther: A Woman of Strength and Dignity
