Proverbs 16:18 NKJV
 Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.
Psalm 7:14-16 NKJV
 Behold, the wicked brings forth iniquity; Yes, he conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood.  He made a pit and dug it out, And has fallen into the ditch which he made.  His trouble shall return upon his own head, And his violent dealing shall come down on his own crown.
Esther 5:1-5 NKJV
 Now it happened on the third day that Esther put on her royal robes and stood in the inner court of the king's palace, across from the king's house, while the king sat on his royal throne in the royal house, facing the entrance of the house.  So it was, when the king saw Queen Esther standing in the court, that she found favor in his sight, and the king held out to Esther the golden scepter that was in his hand. Then Esther went near and touched the top of the scepter.  And the king said to her, "What do you wish, Queen Esther? What is your request? It shall be given to you-up to half the kingdom!"  So Esther answered, "If it pleases the king, let the king and Haman come today to the banquet that I have prepared for him."  Then the king said, "Bring Haman quickly, that he may do as Esther has said." So the king and Haman went to the banquet that Esther had prepared.
Philippians 2:3-5 NKJV
 Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.  Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.  Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,
A humble person puts the needs of others in front of their own.
Romans 12:3 NKJV
 For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.
1 Timothy 6:6-7,11 NKJV
 Now godliness with contentment is great gain.  For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.  But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness.
Proverbs 8:14,17 NKJV
 Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom; I am understanding, I have strength.  I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me.
2 Timothy 2:16-17 NKJV
 But shun profane and idle babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness.  And their message will spread like cancer. Hymenaeus and Philetus are of this sort,
Proverbs 26:12 NKJV
 Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him.
James 3:14-16 NKJV
 But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth.  This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic.  For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.
Revelation 3:17-19 NKJV
 Because you say, 'I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing'-and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked-  I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.
1 Corinthians 13:4-6 NKJV
 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;  does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;  does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
Philippians 2:3-4 NKJV
 Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.  Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.
James 4:6-8 NKJV
 But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: "God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble."  Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.  Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
