    No person like being degraded or made to feel inferior.  It is just part of human nature.

    Humiliate - make (someone) feel ashamed and foolish by injuring their dignity and self-respect, especially publicly.

    This is not a good feeling and there are others who are good at humiliating people. 

    Consider Jesus. With dignity and courage, Jesus endures the humiliation and suffering uncomplainingly. Twice that day Jesus was spit upon, first by the religious leaders and then by the Roman soldiers. (Matthew 26:59-68; 27:27-30) Even this contemptuous treatment, he took without complaining, fulfilling the prophetic words: “My face I did not conceal from humiliating things and spit.”—Isaiah 50:6.

    Christians are taught to imitate Jesus, bearing up under humiliation that they experience. One reason is that it won't last. The other more important one is that it shows our faithfulness and trust in God that he will soon eliminate the cause of such humiliating treatment in the very near future.
