It is voluntary submission to the control or power of God or, in other words, obedience.1 Children are by nature more humble than adults. They not only do not have a good working knowledge of practical skills, they are keenly aware of their own ignorance. As a result, children are inquisitive and eager to be taught. They not only don’t know, they know they don’t know, and want to be given the chance to learn. They “seek” and “ask” and “knock.” Children do by nature just as Christ bids us to do.2 Without humility you are not teachable. Humility and the capacity to accept new truth are directly related. Humbling yourself is not just an expression to wear on your countenance. Rather it is opening your heart up to higher things.3 See MEEKNESS.
