"When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom." —Proverbs 11:2
Pride is your ultimate opponent. It will poison your mind. Like a disease, it is deviously infectious at first. Infecting only you and then it methodically spreads poisoning your work, home, and personal life. It finds insidious ways into your performance, morality, attitude, and reputation. Ultimately it will erode your character and result in broken relationships sometimes with ramifications beyond hope of repair. The ultimate path of pride is"coming disgrace." Instead, check your pride today. Detox with humility by putting yourself around smart, challenging, mature followers who remind you of your futility.
DO THIS: Stop the spread of arrogance—be humble and wise.
PRAYER: God, I have been far too full of myself. Give me the courage to let my pride go, and teach me the way of wisdom through humility.
