Proverb for the Day 11:2 — Pride & Humility!

When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.

This is one of those proverbs which reminds us that we are all going to be humbled (see 18:12; 29:23). “Pride” – thinking I am the smartest person in the room, have all the answers and know everything – will eventually take us down, humiliate us.

But “humility” leads to “wisdom” which sets us up to succeed. Humiliation is very different from humility and we can bring either one on ourselves. It is our choice, either humble ourselves or get humbled (humiliated).
