A Little Fruit in the Diet

Boldness and perseverance are brilliant traits. But without humility, they often turn into arrogance and inflexibility. Humility isn’t weakness. Humility is knowing what words will destroy an opponent’s viewpoint and ego, but never releasing them because you believe his or her heart is more valuable than winning an argument.

Humility is a superfruit of the Spirit, a combination of love, kindness, gentleness, & self-control. The passion to grow it is why the meek inherit the earth—because they can be trusted to produce life. ‬

‪”Pride brings dishonor, but with humility comes wisdom” (Proverbs 11:2).‬
