3 Nephi 12

3 Yea, blessed are the poor in spirit who come unto me, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

To be humble is one requirement to obtain the kingdom of heaven, but that humility has to lead us to Him. The Lord said in other words in a revelation to the Prophet Joseph Smith (Doc. and Cov. 56):

18 But blessed are the poor who are pure in heart, whose hearts are broken, and whose spirits are contrite, for they shall see the kingdom of God coming in power and great glory unto their deliverance; for the fatness of the earth shall be theirs.

A pure heart that is broken and a spirit that is contrite prepares us to see and become part of the kingdom of God.
