By humility and the fear of the Lord
are riches, and honour, and life.
Proverbs 22:4, KJV
It is easy to think that we only have to humble ourselves before God. Yet, it is humility towards others that proves that our humility before God is real. It will be the only proof that humility has become our very nature, that we actually, like Christ, have made ourselves of no reputation.
When in the presence of God lowliness of heart has become, not a positive we assume for a time when we think of Him, or pray to Him, but the very spirit of our lives, it will manifest itself in all our bearing toward our brethren.
The lesson is one of deep importance. The only humility that is really ours is not that which we try to show before God in prayer, but that which we carry with us, and carry out, in our ordinary conduct.
