GOD COMMANDS THAT WE HAVE HUMILITY - It is one of
several NECESSARY Christian "virtues" or attitudes. [It is
NOT to be treated as "optional."]
Examine these verses. How necessary is humility? (Or: What does God say about it?) Do these verses treat it as optional?
Look at the other character qualities listed in these passages. In what ways are they interrelated?
How important is it to have (or to start to have) these qualities in your life? (If necessary, read the extended context - or the entire epistles - to get a better idea of how these qualities relate to life and to salvation.)
List some ways in which you can apply these verses to your life and to the way you interact with others. Are there some specific attitudes or actions you need to change?
"Put on," or "Clothe yourself with" humility. (Colossians 3:12) Make it a part of your life - what people see when they look at you. Make it visible in your life - like clothes!
