Pride is what kept me separated from Jesus. I was determined that I simply did not need Him in my life and I could do just fine on my own. It was at the exact moment when I received my gift of salvation, the spirit of pride came up from deep within and of my mouth. I gave my pride over to Jesus and I am thankful that He is so patient with me!

Pride distorts decision-making ability. An arrogant, conceited, or haughty person will make costly mistakes, but a humble and modest man will clearly see right and wrong, truth and error, wisdom and folly. Your greatness depends on getting rid of all pride. (excerpt source)

When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom. – Proverbs 11:2

  1. It is enlightening to contrast this description of the wicked person with Christ’s description of the godly person in Matthew 5:1–16. Jesus begins with humility,
    “the poor in spirit” (Matt. 5:3), while Solomon starts with “a proud look” (Prov. 6:17). “When pride comes, then comes shame; but with the humble is wisdom”
    (11:2). The seventh characteristic of the wicked is sowing discord among brethren, while the seventh beatitude is “Blessed are the peacemakers” (Matt. 5:9).

    There is a wisdom from above that brings peace and purity to God’s people, and there is a wisdom from beneath that brings strife and shame (James 3:13–18).
    There is a wisdom of this world that destroys the church and a wisdom from God that builds the church (1 Cor. 3:16–23). Warren Wiersbe
