‭Proverbs‬ ‭11‬:‭2‬ NLT
“Pride leads to disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.”

The battle between pride and humility is all through the Bible. People think they are more than they are. People think they are practically God. People think they are the most important thing in the universe. That’s pride and it leads to destruction and disgrace. It never ends well. But humility–Jesus was humble–is when we realize that it’s not all about us and that others matter a lot. It’s when we deliberately take ourselves out of the center of our world and put Jesus there. It’s when we thankfully realize that there is a God and we are not Him. That’s humility and it brings a wonderful wisdom from God and a knowledge of His ways and how to live the very best life.
