There is something that is critical to having a real faith and meaningful relationship with God and others. Humility is foundational to being like Jesus and allowing us to experience true spirituality. And the opposite of humility is pride which is the source and root of all sin which robs of the life God wants for us. Pride causes us to put ourselves before both God and others. It is only in humility that we can allow God and others to speak into us to help us. We can’t or won’t listen without humility. And here’s a sobering truth that we learn in James – God will oppose us until we are humble. God can’t fully bless us in our pride for in our pride we think we know what’s best. None of us want God to oppose us.
