Jesus is the anti-thesis of pride and the face of humility. We clearly see evidence of the former statement in the book of Philippians, “Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” Philippians 2:5-8.
“When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom.” Proverbs 11:2. “
But when his heart was lifted up and his spirit was hardened so that he dealt proudly, he was brought down from his kingly throne, and his glory was taken from him.” Daniel 5:20.
The message is clear. Humility is more important than pride. Glorifying God is what we must do in this life in humility. I’ve seen a number of talented men fall hard because of pride and others find peace by deciding to be humble. Choose humility over pride today.
Tomorrow until eternity. Important. Necessary. A must.
