It’s Hard to be Humble

“Pride comes before destruction, and an arrogant spirit before a fall.” – Proverbs 16:18

Did you hear about the guy who was awarded “Most Humble Citizen” of his community?

They took it away from him as soon as he put his plaque on the wall.

It is hard to be humble at times isn’t it?

Sometimes we think we know more, can do something better, or are a better person than someone else. And, sometimes we just might be right. However, that doesn’t give us permission or the authority to be prideful about it. Somewhere, someone knows more than we do, can do the task better, or is a better person.

Christ Himself gave us the model of humility and calls us to follow in that pattern. God has a way of bringing down the mighty – and that fall can hurt more than our pride!
