  3. They are patient and don’t get frustrated with the weaknesses of others.
  4. The humble person is a peacemaker. In fact, we needhumility to maintain peace in our lives.

  6. A humble person sees their own weaknesses and can readily admit them. When we open up to others about ourselves, it can actually encourage and help them realize they’re not the only ones who deal with things.
  7. A humble person happily serves other people, and they don’t do it to impress others. They do it unto God, knowing their reward will come from God.
  8. A humble person is verythankful. This is one reason they’re usually so happy. When we live with an attitude of gratitude, it releases joy and power into our lives.
  9. A humble person has a tender conscience and is quick to repent.
