Pride? A Haughty Spirit?

There’s an old newspaper adage that says some people have an ego so big that they don’t care what you think or say about them, so long as you spell their name correctly.  Obviously, those people haven’t read Proverbs 16: 16-19.

How much better to get wisdom than gold, to choose understanding rather than silver.

The highway of the upright avoids evil; he who guards his way guards his life.

Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.

Better to be lowly in spirit and among the oppressed than to share the plunder with the proud.

How much clearer can it get than, “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall”?

From the writings of Wendell Harris
