God likes humble. He likes to bless people who know they’re humble. Like it says in Luke 5:31-32, “Jesus told the Pharisees, ‘The healthy people don’t need a doctor, but the sick. I came not to call the righteous (those who think they’re good), but to call sinners (those who know they need help) to repentance.” The humble know they need help, so they’re receptive. The people who think they’re righteous don’t need God. Just like it says about “It’s harder for a rich man to get into heaven than for a camel to go through the eye of a needle.” Why? ‘Cause a rich man thinks he doesn’t need God. He doesn’t need heaven. He’s got money. Why does he need God?
So it sounds to me like there’s going to be a bunch of formerly poor, uneducated, ignorant, but supremely happy people in heaven praising and giving all the glory to God for His mercy and grace. All because they were humble. Maybe they didn’t like it much when they were on the earth, but they knew God was going to deliver them from it. Or maybe, because they were humble, they really surrendered to God and let Him take care of them, inside and out, and He let them enjoy heaven beginning while they were still here on the earth. That’s what humble will do for you. If you humble yourself before God, He will lift you up!
