Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.” (James 4:10, ESV)

In God’s kingdom, humility leads to exaltation, and pride leads to abasement and humiliation.

We are called to humble ourselves before the Lord and in return, the Lord will exalt us.

The Bible Knowledge Commentary puts it this way: The way up is down. The lowly one becomes the lifted one.
