A Proverb To Ponder

"When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom." Proverbs 11:2

I have found this verse to be so true in my own life. Whenever I'm feeling puffed up with pride over something or even the tiniest bit of self-importance, I inevitably fall on my face. In the midst of my fall from my self-appointed perch, I'm usually embarrassed and end up saying something like "gosh, why did I do that? I know better."

This side of heaven I believe it's those embarrassing moments that help teach us how to move closer towards humility.

Do you struggle with pride? In what areas of your life does pride make itself known?
