The Bible says a lot about humility. God calls all people to humble themselves (Micah 6:8; Matthew 23:12; Romans 12:16; Philippians 2:3–4; 1 Peter 5:6). The prophet Zephaniah sums it up well: “Seek the LORD, all you humble of the land, you who do what he commands. Seek righteousness, seek humility” (Zephaniah 2:3). Believers especially are reminded: Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up (James 4:10). Humility goes hand in hand with fearing the Lord and doing what He commands (Proverbs 22:4; 2 Chronicles 7:14).
The weight that ties you down not only makes you vulnerable to sin but also causes you to acquire maladaptive sets of behaviors that keep you stagnated and going around in circles. These patterns derail you from fulfilling your dreams and cause you to abort your purpose so eventually, you leave this earth never fully realizing your potential. Not only that, but when you are unable to break free, you keep those around you bound as well. You become part of the problem rather than the situation. You join the ranks of the blind leading the blind. Jesus asked His disciples “Can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into the ditch?” (Luke 6:39 NKJV) You become the hurting who hurts and the disappointed who disappoints. Book by Dr. Cindy Trimm
The phrase unsearchable riches of Christ comes from Ephesians 3:8–9: “To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to bring to light for everyone what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God, who created all things” (ESV). The Greek for “unsearchable riches” is translated “boundless riches” in the NIV.
