It is honesty! It is honest recognition of who you are, what you are, and why. Most importantly, it is recognition of where it comes from. God. The answer is God.
There is a misconception that humility or being humble is downplaying one’s talents, skills, abilities or contribution. This is blatantly false!
If someone does something that people compliment, but the person says it’s nothing, what are they really doing? The talent, skill, ability, resource, or whatever else that went into something is discounted! It is disregarded! God is not glorified. The people that do this may as well be prideful and take all the credit! Same result.
Humility. Being humble is recognizing and acknowledging God for everything good we have and do.
