Arrogance is the evil twin of confidence. (Tom Avey, non-profit administrator)
Avey illustrates his principle: “Confidence listens; arrogance doesn’t. Confidence likes and seeks counsel; arrogance doesn’t. Confidence can be reproved; arrogance cannot.” Think about that awhile. When we feel too strongly about our opinions and ideas, we may become arrogant and unable to discuss issues reasonably. Has your confidence led to arrogance?
We have confidence in a better hope, through which we draw near to God. (Hebrews 7:19)
