Pride & humility is a topic of utmost importance for Proverbs 16:18  says, “Pride goes before destruction…” and destruction is that which must be avoided at all costs. Therefore pride must be avoided at all costs. We must put on the mind of our Lord Jesus Christ, who was humbly and lowly.

2:18

Are You Too Proud to Receive Help?

If someone offers to help you out, do you say 'no' to the help offered in order to not make yourself appear weak? May God humble us of our pride.

Page 1 of 212

We have nothing but what we have received from God. If we see any truth or if we are kept from any error, it is sheer grace, for any of us is entirely vulnerable to making a regrettable blot.

Bob Jennings, From a letter written to Paul W. in Feb. 2012

One by one, pare and prune from your life every single crutch that has an “I” attached to it. When you become weak enough and small enough and nothing enough, all the strength and power of the Lord Jesus will be made perfect in you by your utter dependence and trust in Him.

Conrad Murrell

Spiritual pride takes great notice of opposition and injuries that are received, and is often speaking of them. Humility disposes a person rather to be, like his blessed Lord when reviled, dumb, not opening his mouth. The more clamorous and furious the world is against him, the more silent and still will he be.

Asahel Nettleton, The Life and Labours of Asahel Nettleton pg. 372





Humility leads the Christian to treat others that are in fault with meekness and gentleness, as Christ did His disciples, and particularly Peter, when he had shamefully denied Him.

Jonathan Edwards, The Life and Labours of Asahel Nettleton pg. 371
 

My printed journals and sermons have been blessed in an uncommon manner. I am only afraid lest people should idolize the instrument and not look enough to the glorious Jesus, in whom alone I desire to glory.

George Whitefield, pg. 91, George Whitefield: The Life and Times of the Great Evangelist of the Eighteenth Century – Volume II



John Bunyan



Paul Washer

I would be very slow to try to be a public figure beyond my church. If God has a public role for you beyond your church, that will happen without your design. If you strategize for that, it will probably have too much vanity in it to be of great service.

John Piper, C. J. Mahaney Interviews John Piper

I have found myself exercised sorely with some particular things that I thought myself most of all freed from. And thus I have ever found it, when I have thought the battle was over and the conquest gained and so let down my watch, the enemy has risen up and done me the greatest injury.

David Brainerd



John Calvin

Pride in the preacher?… What’s the problem? First, unbelief and subtle insecurity cause him to promote himself. He is afraid someone else will get the credit and the honor and threaten his position. But the Christian minister ought to ask himself, “Has God put me here or not?” If so, he can afford to take the low position, for he is secure with God.
