By pride comes nothing but strife, but with the well-advised is wisdom. (Proverbs 13:10, NKJV)
How much conflict could be averted if humility filled the human heart? Pride prevents us from seeking godly advice. Pride, because it has a swollen estimation of self, easily deflects wise counsel and rushes headlong into the fray, sure it is right. The result is strife, contention, turmoil. Pride is a scourge upon the soul and all who encounter it. Let us work to eliminate personal pride and replace it with a humble spirit that will benefit our homes, our churches, our businesses, our country – our souls.
