Nobility: superiority of character
Far too few people seek to be noble in this day and age. We have glorified breaking the rules, bending morality, and being excessive.
Today, if you abide by Biblical morals you are a "prude", if you abide by the rules then you are too submissive, and if you are wealthy then you should be respected (no questions asked).
Nobility used to be one of the most coveted titles of all men.
When did it become "uncool" to act justly, extend mercy, and walk humbly?
When did grace become passivity and selfless love become accommodating ?
