Proverbs 11.1-11

That’s how it works.

I know from experience.

Too bad.

I could have avoided it by paying heed to warnings like this one:

“When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom” (2).

Pride in family.

Pride in experience.

Pride in knowledge.

Pride in position.

Pride in accomplishemnt.

Pride in ability.

Pride in recognition.

Pride in identity.

Pride in service.

Pride in vision.

I wonder how long the list could become?

How long is your list?

Even it only has one point, it’s too long.


The shame is heavy.

And dark.

And crushing.

And bitter.

But if the end result is lowliness, then God be praised.

That is a good silver lining.
