In our society today, everybody expecting to be highly esteemed, but unfortunate, many could not acquire such. A man who desire to be esteem should ready to pay the prize. Our God, the Creator of the heaven and the earth said “This is the one I esteem: he who is humble and contrite in Spirit, and trembles at my word” (Isaiah 66:2).

The only one that can regard and esteem man is God. He has done it to many, and He is ever ready to do it for you in as much as you follow these principles.
To be a humble person means to lower the position of oneself or another. Not proud or haughty. The opposite of proud is humble, and God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. It is our duty to be very humble and reverent in our approaches to God; and when we come before Him, there is no remedy but we must submit and make you as nothing before God. Don’t praise or exalt yourself but allow God to praise and exalt you, but showing a modest estimate of one’s own important. ..to be continue

Modern Christianity glorifies Jesus and not God. The modern christian churches have made Jesus more important than God and to my way of thinking that just isn't What Jesus Would Do, or what Jesus would want.
