Source of Misery #5

Source of misery #5:  Pride.

Pride ends in humiliation, while humility brings honor.  Proverbs 29:23

Living a pride filled kind of life eventually brings humiliation.  Living a humble kind of life eventually brings honor.  In God’s world, things can be the opposite of what we naturally think.  God even tells us “If someone slaps you on the right cheek, offer the other cheek also”  (Matthew 5:39).  A few verses later He says, “Love your enemies!  Pray for those who persecute you!”  Following Jesus often means doing the opposite of how we may “feel.”  It’s no different with pride:  it has a remarkable way of getting into our lives.  It appears without being invited.  And…it leads to humiliation.  Humiliation or honor?  We don’t generally ask for huge doses of humiliation.  However, our actions often tell a different story.  The choice is ours.
