Jesus is king of kings yet he slept on the ground, walked in sandals, and/or rode an ass.

"The greatest among you shall be your servant. For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted." Matthew 23:11-12

"For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted." Luke 14:11

But He gives us more grace. This is why it says: "God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble." James 4:6

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, so that in due time He may exalt you. 1 Peter 5:6

Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

Drive your car in NYC metro area and the opportunity to practice your humble skills happen everyday.

I am getting better but occasionally I revert to stirring up some anger at times.

Staying calm and being kind to my enemies is something I lean on.

I have recognized, it is the fear of allowing others to take advantage of me that stands in the way of trusting God fully, regardless of how uncomfortable it may feel at the moment.
