Wisdom Matters (Day 17)

Although pride is secretly lodged in one’s heart, it will always, always be revealed.

Listen to today’s Truth…

Pride always leads to disgrace.

Read the following Scripture…Proverbs 11:2, “When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.”

Consider these thoughts…The tricky thing about pride is that it can mask itself beneath charismatic words, a religiously sharp lifestyle, and an inviting smile. Sometimes, even the proud do not know that they are prideful.

However, pride will always reveal itself, and it invites destruction. Sometimes, a Christian is just one humble submission away from a mighty breakthrough.
The wisest thing one can do is to CHOOSE humility, before one has to inevitably learn it the hard way.

Apply the truth! The following are optional things to do…

  • What does humility look like for you as a parent, as an employee in your workplace, or even as a student? After you reflect on this, apply it!
  • Ask the Lord what areas in your life requires more humility! After you receive His revelation, respond with application!

Pray…

  • For a humble heart.
  • For grace to know when humility is required!
