#12 in the series "Wisdom From Heaven For Life On Earth"
We continue our examination of the good life from the book of Proverbs with an examination of pride, and its opposite, humility. And it's important that these two conditions of heart be looked at carefully because, when the good life is being considered, there are two paths that can be chosen. One of them, fueled by human pride, seems to lead logically to personal advancement. The other, the path of humility, would appear to go against the grain of upward progress and self-momentum. We can't imagine the humble coming out on top.
But this is to base our choice only on immediate appearances rather than the foundation of God's Word. The truth of the Word that goes against every natural fiber of our being is that self-promotion always works against the joy and presence of the Lord in the heart. So, in a sense, the Christian desiring to please the Lord and find the good life on God's terms will always have to turn against some of his or her natural instincts.
