“Pride leads to disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.”Proverbs 11:2, NLT
Pride tends to puff up, blow up, and grow up very quickly. It spreads very quickly inside a person, and it ruins our hearts and mind.
The best antidote to pride is humility. Humility, according to C.S. Lewis is
“…not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less.”
In other words, when someone compliments you or tells you you’ve done a good job, receive it but don’t allow it to be the only thing you think about. Instead, turn your attention to God and thank him for the compliment you received.
