“Humbles” Word Study: Matthew 23:12

“Humbles” Word Study: Matthew 23:12

A Biblical word study in ESV. May God grant me the endurance to see this study carried out.

Matthew 23:12 – “Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”

The trouble is not seeking humility for the sake of being exalted, but rather seeking humility for humility’s sake. I read this verse and my pride drools at the thought of a formula. I clearly need the Lord’s help if I ever want to be truly humble.
