“Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.” Proverbs 16.18

The Lord Jesus was an example of humility as he came in human flesh; He also taught in the Sermon on the Mount, saying, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.” So those who have been deaf to His voice insist on being proud and maintaining a haughty look. This causes them to be out of His Kingdom, with closed paths and defeated in all aspects.

    Indeed the pride guide us to destruction, but the secret of our victory is the practice of humility.

    I understand that there is only one way a life of someone with pride will end and that is into destruction, and far from God.
