    l think everyone who calls themselves Christian should be hunble . To be called Humble means you have a good quality of faith or that the faith is the goodness of your answer or reply applied n every situation by words or actions that are in line with the word of God . eg your reply to the simple question good morning when your enemy greets you . Your answer should reveal meekness and humbleness it will be good morning my sweet heart not good morning you stupid idiot revealing your anger and resentment towards yesterday s conversations that was not resolved .Your action of faith in a situation of hunger and poverty is to feed and clothes

    That was a good example of Humility in action. I also see it as stemming from one's attitude about oneself. Most people would like to think of themselves better than others: whether in their appearance, their jobs, wealth, or achievements. That's one of the characteristics of the sin nature coming to the fore: that of glorification of self to the despising or minimizing the worth of others.

    The perfect example of Humility is seen in the Lord Jesus ( Phil 2:3-8) as He first humbled Himself by becoming a man & then was obedient to a shameful death; He as the Word of God need not have had to experience any of this, but for the sake of our salvation, He humbled Himself. And then in Rom 12:3, Paul instructs them to not think of themselves as greater than others (this was in reference to use of gifts in the Church, but translates to every day life as well). So our position as Christians has to be one of taking the lower position so that our brother or sister in Christ may be the one that is given the higher position in our eyes. We then reflect that beautiful quality of the Godhead.
