“When pride comes, disgrace follows, but with humility comes wisdom.”

Proverbs 11:2 HCSB

Many of the stories I read in my grade school reading books had a moral lesson at the end. I remember well learning, “Pride comes before downfall” but it was only through far too many episodes of selfish pride interfering with good judgment that I internalized the message. How long before you humble yourself to admit you made a mistake? Or that you need professional help to get through a rough season? Or that you do not have the mental or physical energy to commit to yet another committee, volunteer assignment, or ministry opportunity?🚦
