2 When pride comes, disgrace follows, but with humility comes wisdom. via Proverbs 11 HCSB;CJB – Dishonest scales are detestable to the – Bible Gateway.
My first Scripture of this day.
When pride comes, disgrace follows.
When I give heed to pride; when I think in pride I am sure to act in pride and when I act in pride, disgrace is sure to follow. Dishonor, even. Dishonor to the Name of JESUS and dishonor to the Body of Christ – to the name of Christian. That is the last thing this society needs. We don’t need to give this world any more ‘ammunition’ to hurl at us; they have plenty.
Disgrace is beneath us, my Friends. Let us shun it with all the strength we have; we can only accomplish this in humility – humble living. Humility is not putting ourselves down, it’s lifting JESUS up. And it’s the WISE thing to do!
