Hebrews 4:12-13 "For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account."

5 Characteristics of the Godly!

Scripture Reading: Luke 14:7-11

The Godly are Humble!

God cannot ever use anyone, who is not humble. Matthew 5:3 – Four Greek words are translated to the English Humble or Humility, they mean, humility means being of low estate. It means seeing others as higher than our self.” The word (tapeinoo) literally means "to level a mountain or a hill." Humble people are those who have no hills sticking up. They are not filled up with the hot air of arrogance and pride. 

When we see just how high and far above God is than we are, we should be humble.

One’s pride will bring him low, but he who is lowly in spirit will obtain honor” (Prov 29:23).


It was once seen as the deadliest of sins, but nowadays it has become a virtue in our culture of self-expression. We admire the proud. The advertising industry feeds our pride: “You deserve this product.” In sharp contrast, Jesus modeled humility. Before Jesus, no one ever used “humble” as a compliment. People desire power and glory; they are driven by selfish ambition…yet Jesus wore a different kind of glory--the glory of humility. 

“Humility is not denying your strengths; it is being honest about your weaknesses.”

It is easier for us to humble ourselves than for God to do it for us; and God may have too. If we humble ourselves today, God may lift you up in due time (1 Peter 5:6).

The number of men that God used that either voluntarily humbled themselves (like Moses) or were humbled by God (Jonah) is extensive in the Bible. Paul called himself the chief of all sinners (1st Tim 1:15) and the least of the apostles (1st Cor 15:9), even though he may have actually been the greatest of the apostles, perhaps even the least of all sinners.

Paul’s Humility – 1 Corinthians 2:1-5

A godly man is one who esteems others better than himself as Paul writes, (Phil 2:3-4) even as Jesus Christ did (Phil 2:6-8). He will allow God to exalt him in due time (Phil 2:9-11).
