"Before destruction the heart of a man is haughty, and before honor is humility.” (Proverbs 18:12)

Today, we are going to examine the word "humility" and how it relates to the practical and biblical principles for "Spiritual" growth. In essence, "humility" is the subjection of oneself from pride. Humility is further defined as the state or quality of being humble; Freedom from pride and arrogance; Lowliness of mind; A modest estimate of one’s own worth; A sense of one’s own unworthiness through imperfection and sinfulness; Self-abasement; Humbleness; Serving the Lord with all humility of mind; A disposition to be humble; A lack of false pride; A humble feeling; Amenability; Back seat; Commitment; Compliance; Consecration; Dedication; Devotion; Dovelikeness; Gentleness; Inferiority; Meekness; Minority; Nonresistance, Nonviolent resistance; Obedience; Passiveness; Peaceableness; Quietness; and Sacrifice.

In the business world, it is called "humility," the key characteristic of great and honorable leaders. It is the leadership quality, ability, and growth development process to build healthy cross-culture relationships for sustainability globally. The "humility" has a direct connection between "honor" from the inner reflection of the “heart” to build sustainable relationships, not comprising oneself identity or integrity. The "humility" genuineness approach decreases in self-gratification and increases in the willingness to change for the greater impact in society.

In the context of the scripture, King Solomon, “known as God’s Wisdom Leader,” left on record for all people and leadership the importance of knowing the virtue of humility and the consequence of pride. For instance, personally, I call this, "The-Harness-Of-Pride." It is the channel in the likeness of a water flow joining the two divides of pride and humility with a control mechanism to oneself to an even passage flow to make use of the two to produce honor and character. Thought to ponder: "The humility of a person reveals the magnitude of honor, character, and value.” It is an in-depth ability to know humility starts with the “State of Mind” but it is the “Spirit of the Heart” that releases levels of “true” honor and character. Therefore, unveiling the value of a person. This disposition has the spirit of life through adversity, to produce life. At this level, the genuineness of humility unveils truth in character on multiple levels.
