Wisdom 16.18

“Pride comes before destruction, and an arrogant spirit before a fall. Better to be lowly of spirit with the humble than to divide plunder with the proud.” – Proverbs 16:18-19 HCSB

Pride is a peculiar ailment. While easily identified by others, it’s often denied by the one suffering with it. The scripture provides a remedy though; an honest, prayerful, self-examination. Once done, the recovery may have some short-term side effects, but the long-term benefits far outweigh the brief discomfort of repentance.
