  • I think it really means that a person sees herself as God sees her. She knows that she is not the one in charge of anything, but rather that she is a servant of the most high God, that He has absolute power over her and over her world, and that she tries to be obedient to Him at all times and in all things.

  • A humble heart is a heart not full of pride and self love. A humble heart is not self-seeking, but seeks to love others, as Christ loves us :)

  • It describes someone who acts and lives with humility, someone who places others before oneself, who doesn't act in selfishness or out of pride or other self-serving means....

  • Humility is the opposite of pride. When we come to someone in humility we choose to put them above ourselves ( not as in a pedestal). We choose to see their best interests before ours .

  • Humility is a byproduct of a lifetime of kindness and cannot decide to have a humble heart, but one will become humble without realizing it
