Humility

HUMIL'ITY, noun [Latin humilitas.]

1. In ethics, freedom from pride and arrogance; humbleness of mind; a modest estimate of one's own worth. In theology, humility consists in lowliness of mind; a deep sense of one's own unworthiness in the sight of God, self-abasement, penitence for sin, and submission to the divine will.

Before honor is humility Proverbs 15:33.

Serving the Lord with all humility of mind. Acts 20:19.

2. Act of submission.

With these humilities they satisfied the young king.


Luke 14:11 11 "For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."


Never place yourself above anyone, not even great sinners. Humility often saves a sinner who has committed many transgressions.

St. Basil the Great (+379) On Humility
