Scripture of the Day: Humility

Verses are meant to be markers to read the context more fully, as the Puritans and others often meant Scripture references to be used.

Good and upright is the LORD;
therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.
He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.
All the ways of the LORD are loving and faithful
toward those who keep the demands of his covenant.
For the sake of your name, LORD,
forgive my iniquity, though it is great.
Psalm 25:8-11

“These are the ones I look on with favor: those who are humble and contrite in spirit, and who tremble at My word.”
Isaiah 66:2b

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 5:3

For by the grace given me I say to every one of you:
Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought,
but rather think of yourself with sober judgment,
in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.
Romans 12:3

Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become “fools” so that you may become wise.
1 Corinthians 3:18

For who makes you different from anyone else? What do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as though you did not?
1 Corinthians 4:7

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
Philippians 2:3-4

Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.
Jeremiah 9:24
