8/12 Proverbs: The Difference Between Pride & Humility

In a Nutshell: Pride is most hidden to the eyes that must see it and the heart that must perceive it.  That is the best work of Satan’s deception.  Training us to see it in ourselves is best done when we are children, in the context of the family’s love and the gospel’s truth.

Ice Breaker:  “There is a great man who makes every man feel small. But the real great man is the man who makes every man feel great.” by Chesterton, Gilbert K. What do you think? True or embellished?

 

Texts:  Pr. 11:2; 13:10; 15:33; 16:5,18,19; 18:12; 29:23

Proverbs 11:2  When _PRIDE_ comes, then comes _DISGRACE_, but with the _HUMBLE_ is _WISDOM_.

Proverbs 13:10 By _INSOLENCE_ comes nothing but _STRIFE_, but with those who take _ADVICE_ is _WISDOM_.

Proverbs 15:33 The _FEAR_ of the Lord is instruction in _WISDOM_, and  _HUMILITY_ comes before _HONOR_.

Proverbs 16:19 It is better to be of a _LOWLY_ spirit with the _POOR_ than to divide the _SPOIL_ with the _PROUD_.

Proverbs 18:12 Before _DESTRUCTION_ a man’s heart is _HAUGHTY_, but humility comes before _HONOR_.

The Choice is Mine:

I will ask those closest to me to describe what I look like when I am arrogant.

I will ask those closest to me to describe what I look like when I am humble.
