Humility - A definition

What are your thoughts about Humility and how do you define it? My thoughts are it's the beginning of true growth in the Lord and I define it this way.

Humility - The emptying of self to the point that there is no other option but to depend on God, and actually depending on Him. I am nothing, He is all in all.

I could give you the Webster's Dictionary definition.. The Biblical version includes 70x7 and swallowing our pride. Of course I haven't started my study yet.

It sure does have a deeper meaning when it's applied the way God instructs us to have it.

The world thinks a person is humble if they don't brag.
