Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall. Better to live humbly with the poor than to share plunder with the proud. Those who listen to instruction will prosper; those who trust the Lord will be joyful.
Beware! Pride is hazardous to your health and to your social environment. This should be daily in the back of our mind when we pursue life ambitiously. Pride does not develop all at once. It shows up on our blind side. We are headed for destruction without an antidote. Always listen to the instructions of the Lord and let His priorities guide us if we expect to prosper.
