On Being “Pridefall”

Proverbs 18:12Before his downfall a man’s heart is proud, but humility comes before honor. (NIV 1984)

My Musings – Many times we cannot see the fall coming because we are blinded by pride, when actually undue pride is a fairly good indicator that a fall is coming. Humility over our accomplishments is an admirable trait and is likely to result in honor from others.

My Advice – A fine line exists between a sense of satisfaction over accomplishments or status and excessive pride or ego. Make sure the satisfaction is tempered by a good measure of genuine humility rather than flaunted by unmerited pride.
