Proverbs 29

Verse 23, A man’s pride will bring him low, but the humble in spirit will retain honor. Pride is what makes me want to stand head and shoulders above everyone else. Yet it’s what will bring me down. Humility causes me to exalt others ahead of me, but in the end I receive honor. Pride is one of those things that God hates: Proverbs 6:16-17. Pride is something that God resists: James 4:6. Why does God hate pride? Because it makes me think that I can get along without Him. It’s not that God has some need for me to want Him. It’s that I actually do need Him. I may not think that I need to abide by the law of gravity, but I need to. If I choose to jump off of a ten story building, thinking that I don’t need to worry about the law of gravity, I’m in trouble. An astronaut who thinks he doesn’t need his spacesuit is in for trouble. I need God. I need to pay attention to His ways.
