People often confuse Humility with false humility. The difference between the two is one that is simple - humility never lies - it always speaks the truth.
Let's give an example. A person is asked, "Would you like me to help you with that?" Consider these two responses:
1) "Actually, yes, I could use some help. Thank you."
2) "No, no, no, I can handle it," while the person then really wants help.
The first response is true. It admits one's own lack, own's own need. It accepts and receives love - which is humility.
The second response is a lie. It is proud, it is deceitful, it is false.
Too often with act in this second way and call it humility - we think being humble means you don't let others aid you, we think it means you "try not to be a burden" -- but that is not humility. That's denying reality and spurning love.
Likewise, when our Lord instructs us to be humble, He is not telling us to merely mouth the words, not merely to say, "Oh yes, I'm a poor miserable sinner" while we add in our minds "but not as miserable as that fellow over there." Rather, a call to humility is a call to see yourself truly - one who is hurt and aching and in need.
Beware of false-humility -- rather, in humility receive the good that is given you.
