True humility is putting the interests of God and other people before yourself (Philippians 2:3-4).  Proud people believe that life is all about them.  Humble people are focused on God and others, not self.  We need to identify prideful traits toward others and, instead, express humility.



Reacting with anger toward others (Ephesians 4:26)

Being gentle and patient (Colossians 3:12-13)

Being consumed with what others think of us (Galatians 1:10)

Committed to pleasing God (Proverbs 9:8)

Resisting authority (1 Peter 2:13-17)

Being submissive and obedient (Romans 13:1-2)

Admitting when you are wrong (Proverbs 10:17)

Quickly admitting when you are wrong (Proverbs 29:23)

Minimizing your own sin (Matthew 7:3-5)

Repentance is a way of life (1 John 1:9)

Having an inflated view of yourself (1 Corinthians 4:7)

Having an accurate view of your gifts and abilities (Romans 12:3)

Talking too much (Proverbs 10:19)

Being a good listener (James 1:19)

I will share seven more prideful traits toward others that we need to turn into humility in next month’s blog.
