20 Bible Verses About Being Kind and Humble
Today we will be dealing with 20 bible verses about being kind and humble. As believers, we are the light of the world. We are a city set upon the hills that can not be hidden. The bible explained that we are the salt of the world. Nevertheless, with all these qualifications God still wants us to be kind and humble to people. It doesn’t matter if they share the same faith with us or not, we must learn to treat people right. Christ taught us that the greatest commandment is love. We must love our God with all our heart and we must love our neighbors as ourselves.
Loving our neighbors as ourselves goes beyond the word of mouth, we must show it through our act of kindness and humility. Salvation is not a ticket to be proud of other people who are not Christians. Many believers have placed themselves in the position of a judge. They believe everyone else is going to hell except them. So they naturally see an unbeliever as an enemy. Whereas Christ didn’t die for those that are saved, he came for the unsaved. As we have been bought with a price, we must endeavor to show others the light too by being kind and humble.
The world no longer reads the bible, we are the ones they read. Our attitude and character can either lead people to Christ or make them derail completely. Just by being kind and, humble unbelievers can be converted. We have compiled a list of 20 Bible verses about being kind and humble.
