Samuel said to Saul, the king, "When thou wast little in thine own sight, wast thou not made the head of the tribes of Israel, and the Lord anointed thee king over Israel?" (1 Samuel 15:17).

God delights in humble men. Luke 1:51-52 tell us that God "hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree."

There is a great need for men who are successful, but not proud of their success. The man who is prideful of his success has failed the test of humility and is not successful at all. He is heading for a fall.
To be little in one's own eyes, even in the midst of accomplishment and success is something to be desired for it is rare. God loves this attitude of humility.

Most men fail to understand how obnoxious pride is to God. Everything man has creation wise has been given to him by God. Even the air we breathe. It is God that gives the power to get wealth. Deuteronomy 8:17-18 says, "And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealthy. But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth."
