Rick Warren said,
Humility is not thinking less of yourself; its thinking of yourself less.
Humility is a difficult virtue to cultivate because as soon as one “feels humble” they’ve failed. You can’t “compare” it with others. That’s when pride has crept back in.
Humility can only be accomplished when comparing ourselves with God Himself. To see what He has done in our lives helps us to praise Him AND give Him credit. When we credit ourselves then we’ve slid back into the cesspool that prides holds us in.
