A man's pride will bring him low, but a humble spirit will obtain honor. Proverbs 29:23
Pride gives us a "high", but it is always a false high without any permanent foundation. Pride gives us a sense of superiority, but the props are about to crumble. No wonder God said, "Pride comes before the fall." and again, "God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble." Pride is an unusual disease. It makes everyone else sick, and then kills us. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.
