Verse of the Day

When pride comes, then comes dishonor, but with the humble is wisdom. [Proverbs 11:2 – NASB]

I’ve got the talent to be a pretty good golfer, but to be brutally honest (with you and myself), I’m not. In fact, I’m just plain bad. I play once or twice a year with my good bud, Lewie Bock, and spend most of the time “in the woods.” Thanks to a wicked slice, my tee shots rarely see the fairway. The ball heads into the trees in a hurry. Invariably the search for my wayward ball always starts 10 to 20 yards further down the path than its actual trajectory would warrant.

Why in the world is that? Well, it’s pride, of course. Even with respect to our failures and shortcomings we humans still imagine that we perform better than we have in actuality. Ironically, our pride isn’t limited to our accomplishments, but extends to our weaknesses as well. Amazing, isn’t it?

As today’s passage points out, there is nothing but dishonor in pride. It’s sinful behavior and that’s a fact. So eliminate pride from all aspects of your life no matter where it might be lurking. This is best accomplished by adopting an attitude of total humility. A wise person is a humble person.
