Humble people in the bible – Jesus

When asked who is the most humble person in the bible? The answer is undeniably Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ who according to the bible, came to the world as the son of God to die for the sins of the world. The personality of Jesus is without doubt and reproach remarkable as he set the standard and example of humility for the whole world to see and imitate. His humility ran across his interactions with the people of his days; this was manifest in these ways, he was easily accessible by people generally, he did not attribute the miracles to himself alone, he showed compassion for others, and even dined with sinners. Jesus Christ was so humble that after his death, the apostle Paul wrote on his humility even as the son of God.

Moses was humble enough not to rebel against God in all these years of privileged relationship and friendship with the maker of all things. His humility in spite of his other personal flaws made the children of Israel trust him to lead them. The relationship God had with Moses was devoid of pride with exception to when he hit the rock when God told him to speak to the rock.

Humble people in the bible - Apostle Paul

The New Testament of the Bible will be incomplete without the mention of Paul the Apostle.

Paul is an example who did not just show humility, but he also preached it. Though Paul practiced as a lawyer under the Jewish teacher Gamaliel, he later took up a job as a tent maker while preaching the gospel. Paul was humble enough to approach the older brethren after his supernatural encounter, speaking to them with all sense of humility despite the former position and role he played in killing Stephen. Paul’s humility is also reflected in his writings detailing his conversations with apostles and general followers of Christ. In a particular teaching where he was pointing out the division in the Christian faith as some aligned with their preferred teachers; EVEN AS THEY SAID “I belong to Paul, or I belong to Apollos. or I belong to Christ” In these divisions in the church then, Paul wrote to the church telling them to desist from belonging to sides; that act showed how humble he was refusing to take glory that didn’t belong to him.
