Humility is so much better than pride

It’s better that people think you can’t (but you can) than for them to think you can (but you can’t).

Humility is so much better than pride. Rather than brag about your abilities, be honest and humble.

For the Christian, this means that we acknowledge God’s grace in our lives. We realize that we cannot do anything without Him. Yet, we realize that He lives within us so this gives us incredible value! This keeps us humble and grateful.

So, be humble. Let people be pleasantly surprised when you surpass their expectations. That’s much better than having them chuckle under their breath when they see you not measuring up to your own.

James 4:6 (CSB) “But he gives greater grace. Therefore he says: ‘God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.'”
