Humility guards the path to My presence, and all who come to Me must walk in it.  A proud heart I despise.  You cannot self-righteously make lists of problems you have with others and claim humility as a character trait.  Comparing another to your own standard of righteousness is the fruit of a proud and judgmental heart.  After all, your righteousness is nothing more than filthy rags.  That’s why I came.  Humility is realizing who you are in Me (no more, no less) and acting accordingly by treating others as they are in Me. Let humility of heart be a defining factor in your relationship with Me and with others. Remember that iron sharpens iron to strength.  What you see as a flaw in another, may be the very thing I am using to build character in you.  Col. 3:12-13, “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Bear with one another; if anyone has a complaint against someone else, forgive him.  Indeed, just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you must forgive.”
