Bible Verses About Humility to Help You Be Humble and Obedient

It is recorded in the Bible, “Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honor is humility” (Proverbs 18:12). Without humbleness, you can neither get through your Christian walk of faith nor be able to do God’s will. God likes those who are humble and detests those who are proud and arrogant. It is because only the humble people can modestly seek the truth, and eventually achieve knowing God and obedience to God, thus receiving God’s blessings. Arrogant believers or servers of God will easily offend God. Clearly, it’s so important to have a humble and seeking heart. Here we select the following Bible verses about humility that will show you the way to being humble and obedient.
