Stop being so sure that you are always right and others wrong. (J. C. Ryle, 19th century Anglican bishop, speaking to young men)

It’s characteristic of young people, isn’t it? They’re sure that they are right; rarely will they admit to being wrong. But, maybe it’s not just the youth that demonstrate that kind of

overconfidence. In the political arena, such arrogance is the norm; it’s expected. But it isn’t a desirable personality trait, is it? And God hates pride.

Do not keep talking so proudly or let your mouth speak such arrogance, for the LORD is a God who knows, and by him deeds are weighed. (1 Samuel 2:3)
