Humility is the opposite of pride and selfrighteousness. Only God is Holy. Our feeble attempts to make our selves righteous will fail and create humility in us. We show kindness to others realizing that we have our own faults. We love people because Jesus loves us and gave His life for us. We show grace to others because God has shown us such grace and mercy. The only way to learn humility is for God to bring us low. Pride always goes before a fall. When we think we are something, God says we are nothing. We understand that God does not need us, but we sure do need Him. It is understanding that we have nothing in us to commend us to God. We all sin and fall short of the Glory of God. Paul said it best; He had a thorn in the flesh to keep him from pride and selfrighteosness. He asked the Lord three times to remove it, and God said NO, Sometimes it is better for us to have some small sin in our life than to be pridefull and selfrighteous. The good news is that Gods grace is sufficient for us even though satan accuses us day and night. It makes us rely upon God completely and trusting only in His righteousness, and not our own. Man says, I can overcome, Jesus says, without me you can do nothing.
My opinion is that humble means having or showing a modest or low estimate of one's own importance or lower (someone) in dignity or importance.
Psalm 147:6: The lord lifts up the humble; he casts the wicked down to the ground.
