HOW MUCH PRIDE DO WE LET GET IN OUR WAY OF WISDOM??
10Where there is strife, there is pride,but wisdom is found in those who take advice.
13: 10 I was wrong or I need advice are difficult phrases to utter because they require humility. Pride is an ingredient in every quarrel. It stirs up conflict and divides people. Humility, by contrast, heals. Guard against pride. If you find yourself constantly arguing, there is a good chance that pride has taken root in your heart. You need to ask God to dig it up immediately before its roots grow any deeper. Be open to the advice of others, ask for help when you need it, and be willing to admit your mistakes. That is a good antidote for keeping pride from growing unchecked within you.
Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible
I am sure that most of us have struggled with pride before and hopefully have overcome that sinfull attitude. I sure had that problem for many years. But with the help of Jesus I finally overcame it. Does it still try to surface? you bet!! But with God's help I can keep it out of my life.
ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and make sure to keep pride out of your way of gaining wisdom so that we can serve a loving God who will help us overcome whatever sin we are faced with everyday.
