Mark Him Down As A Proud Man

One way in which a really humble Christian shows himself, is by having a high opinion of others.  Whenever you see a person who appears to take every opportunity of putting down others, mark him down as a proud man and be sure that he does it in order to exalt himself!

On the other hand, whenever you see any one anxious to hide his brother's failings, unwilling to expose his little defects, you will generally find that he is a humble man, and one who deeply feels the many faults of his own character.

[Ashton Oxenden]


Philippians 2:3 ... Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.

Romans 12:10 ... Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;

Galatians 5:13 ... For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.❤
