Too often we don’t realize what we have until it’s gone. Too often we’re too stubborn to say, ‘Sorry, I was wrong.’ Too often it seems we hurt the ones closest to our hearts, and we let the most foolish things tear us apart. — Unknown
Pride forces a person to consider only himself and what is important to him. It blinds, deceives, become defensive, angry and sarcastic. Pride blinds us to the reality of God’s interest in our individual lives. –“Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall” Proverbs 16:18. In order to keep our pride in check, we must humbly seek God, admitting and confessing our pride to Him. –“When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.” Proverbs 11:2
Being humble is also to be aware that you make mistakes and also being aware that in those mistakes there are lessons to be learned that makes us a better person. When we allow pride in, it’s easy to not take responsibility for our actions and play the blame game.
Being humble is being empathetic to the realization that you don’t know everything and understanding that others are not perfect and will make mistakes too.
This week, let’s ask God to help us see our pride problem and give us the strength to face and admit it to Him. Let’s ask Him to forgive us, show us favour even when we don’t deserve it and help us deal with pride in our relationships, marriage, business and everyday life.
“But he gives us more and more strength to stand against all such evil longings. As the Scripture says, God gives strength to the humble but sets himself against the proud and haughty”. – James 4:6 Living Bible (TLB)
Have a blessed and fruitful week!
