The difference between Humility and Timidity. Humility is thinking of yourself less. It infers that you are considerate and regard others before yourself. On the contrary, timidity is thinking less of yourself. You refuse to recognize your own strength and you consciously assume others to be better than you Timidity is not the plan of God for us. We cannot be Timid because our Strength and confidence is in God.
With smooth words [of flattery and praise] he will turn to godlessness those who [are willing to] disregard the [Mosaic] covenant, but the people who [are spiritually mature and] know their God will display strength and take action [to resist]. the Lord.
We must be humble, helping others out but not placing ourselves below for people to trample on us.
