Proverbs 11:2 “When pride comes, disgrace comes;/ but with the humble is wisdom.”
Pride is the root of all evil. It is also the basis of all failure. When we think we know best and want to control our lives, God is prevented from working through us. We prevent His miracles from being manifested in our lives because we lack surrender to His power and love.
Most of us struggle with humility. We think it is weakness. Yet, Jesus was the most humble of all. He died on the cross, despite being God!
Lord, I praise You for the gift of humility and helping me to embrace it with all my heart.
When have you been prideful in your actions and have it backfire? How can you be more focused on Christ and follow His selfless ways?
