The Pleasures of Humility

“Listen to this familiar passage again for the very first time: ‘God . . . gives grace to the humble’ (James 4:6). Contrary to popular and false belief, it’s not ‘those who help themselves’ whom God helps; it’s those who humble themselves.

“This is the promise of humility. God is personally and providentially supportive of the humble. And the grace He extends to the humble is indescribably rich. As Jonathan Edwards wrote, ‘The pleasures of humility are really the most refined, inward, and exquisite delights in the world.'”

C. J. Mahaney, Humility: True Greatness (Colorado Springs, CO: Multnomah, 2005), 20-21.
