  • depreciation no....humbled yes....expl....when you were a child and you seen your parents did you think you knew more than them or were wiser than them? prob not...ok our Lord is our heavenly father we do not know more than him or are we wiser than him nor could we ever be. so were humble ourselves before him in respect to his wisdom power and glory.

  • No......I think that some people mistake self-depracation for being humble......and frankly being humble isn't a requirement either, it's a byproduct of His Love for us that eventually happens.

  • Yes, you must grovel at his feet and beg for your salvation on a regular basis through prayer, or else you will burn in you know where!

    But doesn't He want you to understand that you are not nor ever will be "worthy" of his love and forgiveness? And doesn't he want you to believe that you are born a sinner, for which you must beg forgiveness from....I don't see this as showing someone how to be humble.
