Humility does not mean that you think less of yourself; that serves no purpose. God wants you to use your gifts well, for your own needs, and at least as well for the good of others. Acknowledging that life itself, and all the good things in life, are God’s gift, is an expression of humility. Knowing that God gives you your talents and abilities for the greater good, as well as your own needs, should give you a ‘healthy humility’ and the God- grounded confidence to boldly and generously share your gifts in ways that give glory to Him.
