With popularity comes the need for humility. With prosperity comes the need for integrity. (Chuck Swindoll, author)
Only a few people may want to be the life-of-the-party, but almost everyone wants to be popular. No one enjoys being the “wall flower” at a party or a class reunion. But, like every positive trait, even popularity has its downside. The more popular you are, the more you may have to deal with pride. That’s why Swindoll says that humility is a helpful antidote for pride.
Pride leads to disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom. (Proverbs 11:2)
