Humility helps us not to fall 26 May 2017 Bible Verses, Proverbs Humility is an important word in the Bible. It is the opposite of PRIDE. Many people quote the proverb, "Pride goes before a fall." Some may not realize it is from one of Solomon's proverbs: Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. (Prov. 16:18) No one wants to be destroyed or to fall from God's favor. How can we be God's friends? We need humility. We need to be humble. Humility is being modest in our opinion of ourselves. We should not think we are better than others. We should always praise God for all the good things that come into our lives rather than taking credit for them. He is in control of all things and all people.
