Examples of Biblical Humility

The best example of humility in the Bible is that of Jesus Christ. He did not treat others with contempt or feel proud because He was the Son of God. He carried Himself with humility wherever He went. Philippians 2:5-7 tells us that we should have the same mindset that was in Christ Jesus. He was by nature God but did not consider equality with God to be something to use to His advantage. He took the nature of a servant while He was on earth.

Numbers 12:3 says that Moses was a very humble man, more than anyone else on the face of the earth. Moses was not always humble because he once killed an Egyptian who was torturing his fellow Hebrew. God worked in Moses’ heart until he became a humble man. Like Moses, we can allow God to work humility into our hearts.

The apostle Paul was a humble man. In 1 Corinthians 15:9, he says that he was the least of the apostles because he persecuted the church of God. We know that Paul was a great apostle, and yet he looked upon himself as less important than the other apostles. We can be like Paul and remain humble even when we have high positions in society.
