Write Upon My Heart: Modesty Character Book


If I am proud and boastful,
If I must be the center of everything,
If I must tell all I have Or all I do,
I know nothing yet of modesty.

Modesty is a godly and biblical attitude or state of our hearts which truly directs our behavior. The Bible says, “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” —Proverbs 23:7. This is certainly true. The opposite of modesty is conceit. When one is conceited one has an overly high opinion of one’s self.

In the dictionary the synonyms for conceit include pride, self-glory, self-esteem, self-exaltation, self-importance, and many more. Hmm . . . We can see the picture—SELF is at the center of every thing that is not modest. In fact, modesty is the only opposite given for conceit. So, if we act in a proud manner, are a show-off, speak loudly, brag about ourselves or our possessions, wear flashy clothes that draw attention to us, or throw tantrums, or (and you can probably fill in the blank), you can be sure that SELF is at the center of our hearts, and a modest spirit is nowhere to be found.

Why is a modest spirit important? Because a modest spirit is the spirit of Christ. “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.” —Philippians 2:5-7. We pray that this little study will help you to identify what attitude is in your heart, and how you can replace it with the spirit of modesty.
