Job 8:7
Your beginnings will seem humble, so prosperous will your future be.

Perhaps if we are interested in receiving more blessings from God, we might want to consider another approach. One that might include how important it is to understand what it means to be humble. There are several scriptures in the Bible that acknowledges the importance of being humble. Here are just a few…
Luke 1:51-53
51 He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
    he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
52 He has brought down rulers from their thrones
    but has lifted up the humble.
53 He has filled the hungry with good things
    but has sent the rich away empty.
Psalm 149:4
For the LORD takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with victory.
Luke 14:11
For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”
