God Loves Humility

He saves the humble. Psalm 149:4

with the same intensity that he hates arrogance, God loves humility. The Jesus who said, “I am gentle and humble in spirit” (Matthew 11:29) loves those who are gentle and humble in spirit. “Though the Lord is supreme, he takes care of those who are humble” (Psalm 138:6). God says, “I live with people who are … humble” (Isaiah 57:15). He also says, “These are the people I am pleased with: those who are not proud or stubborn” (Isaiah 66:2). And to the humble, God gives great treasures:

He gives honor: “If you want to be honored, you must be humble” (Proverbs 15:33).

He gives wisdom: “It is wise to be humble” (Proverbs 11:2).

He gives direction: “He shows those who are humble how to do right” (Psalm 25:9).

And most significantly, he gives grace: “He gives grace to the humble” (1 Peter 5:5).
