I have long remembered reading the captivating novel "David Copperfield" by Charles Dickens. Dickens vividly pictures hypocrisy in the character of Uriah Heep who repeatedly says, “I’m so humble,” while living a deceitful life. Jesus had much to say about humility, and he often did so in the presence of religious leaders who felt superior to others. In the New Testament, humility is associated with a gentleness that reveals inner strength and courage. Humble individuals recognize their own sin and need for salvation. “For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted” (Luke 14:11).
