What the Bible says about Pride and Humility


Pride brings: 




Opposed by God 

Keeps his distance 

Brings down into the dust 


Will be brought down 

God does not answer 




Humility brings: 



Long life 


God's grace 

At the right time God will lift you up in honor 


Leads us in doing right 

Teaches us his ways 



Hears the cries of the needy 

Cares for us 


Delights in you 

Crowns in victory 

Is gracious to 

restore the crushed spirit  

Revive courage  


Will inherit the whole earth 

Will be exalted
