Christ is humble. He wants us to imitate that example. In Proverbs, it says many times that humility is the way to honor. The truth is that you need to go down to up. God hates pride. Pride got Satan kicked out of hell. Pride is the opposite of humility. Pride says that, "I can be like God.' The truth is that those who exalt themselves will be humbled and those who humble themselves will be exalted. Jesus comes first. Others come second. We are last. Another incident was the Tower of Babel, they tried to be great with the tower. God humbled them by confusing their languages and making the tower into a proverb. Those with humility become nothing. Jesus was a servant and not a personage to be served. If you want to be great in the kingdom of heaven, then you have to be the least in this world. Grow in the world and you become less in the kingdom of heaven. Grow in Christ, then you become least in this world. Choose Christ; it is the better option. Choose the Christ-life and you will benefit, but if you choose the self-life, you will hurt. Everything word that begins with self (such as self-concept, self-perception, etc.) is contrary to Christ. We need to be all about Christ. When we are concerned with self, we have a pride problem and when we are concerned with self, God cannot move because self is taking all of the space. Humility means taking a lesser position than others. Now, do not submit to a person and obey them mindlessly. God did not agree with total submission. However, mutual submission is okay. Everyone needs to submit to each other. We need to submit to each other as Christians. If we are humble to each other, we will grow together.
