Human pride refuses to face the truth. (William Wilberforce, 18th – 19th century British statesman)
Pride is an evasive human trait. It hides behind a lot of mental activity that judges others on the basis of one’s personal opinions. We rarely stop to think that doing so suggests that we’re sure our views are superior to others’. Isn’t that pride? We overlook it because we think that our education or experience gives us a better perspective. Beware of the potential results!
Pride ends in humiliation, while humility brings honor. (Proverbs 29:23)
