Praising God

The following is an excerpt from His Delight: 31 days of Praise and Worship

The   words humble and humility are very com­monly misunderstood. In religion   today, they are taken to mean a state of self-deprecation, self-degradation  and not realizing your own worth. Bible humility is not making yourself into  nothing, it is realizing that without God you cannot be everything you are meant to be.
 
Humility in Christ is recognizing that your sufficiency is not in yourself but in the   One who made you and knows everything about you. True worshippers are humble   people because to genuflect and worship something or   someone you MUST acknowledge the fact that, that thing or being is of a   higher status than you are.
 
As Christians we are also warned about   the dangers of pride. All our accomplishments, knowledge, spiri­tuality, etc are nothing before the King of your life who gave you the very breath that you take.

    I agree. True humility is a lot more than what is generally accepted as humility – and it is quite a rare attribute.
