Pride goes before destruction,
and haughtiness before a fall.
When I read this verse of scripture I'm reminded of the old saying I've heard all my life about getting down off your high horse....meaning don't think we're better than others. That's what I think of when I think of "pride"....and I've never really considered myself prideful....until.....
I find it very....very....difficult to ask for help....and for the most part, I won't, except for Pappy. A few months ago when my car tore up, I was taught several lessons and one of them had to do with my pride. My sister-in-law....Pappy's sister....called about a week after the car overheated and asked if she could come by. When she walked in the back door, she handed me her car keys and told me I could use it as long as I needed it. That's probably one of the nicest things that anybody has ever done for me. I would have never asked to borrow her car....or anyone else's for that matter....and you know why?
Because of my "pride".
I'm now convinced that sometimes the "fall" referred to in this verse has to do with falling on our knees in repentance....and thankfulness!!!
HOPE your day is blessed, Sweet Reader!!!
In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
