Daily Verse: “When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom.” Prov. 11:2

Humility brings wisdom.

“Pride is the center of all sin,” said our pastor in a recent message. Ever since he uttered the words, I’ve meditated on their truth. At the heart of sin lies our selfish desires, also known as pride.

“Don’t write a book on pride; no one will buy it,” Joyce Meyers said at her conference. Chuckling at the time, she also speaks the truth. No one wants to look at the pride within themselves nor take responsibility for it.

Addressing our pride issues unveils dark corners in our hearts. Selfishness remains the bedrock of sin; we put our needs before God’s desires and others. Pride makes me angry when someone cuts me off in traffic; humility keeps my heart soft and reminds me that God loves them too.

Ask God to keep your heart soft towards others, alerting you to prideful ways. Admitting our problem leads to fixing it. Pride fuels sin, but humility fuels wisdom. 

God helps us keep a soft heart when we submit our ways to Him.

Lord, forgive us for our pride. Humble us gently and keep our hearts soft towards You and others. Pull the thorns of pride from our hearts and replace them with Your love and grace. IJNIP. Amen
