When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom. Proverbs 11:2
In the first ten chapters and in the remaining 21 chapters, the theme will be wisdom. We don’t see a lot of humility in leadership, do we? Sadly, the church has bought into the notion of bigger equals better. The mentality says “the bigger I build something (building or even the people in them),” the more God will approve of me. It’s never quite as blatant as that, but the sentiment exists. How sad is that!
What does it take to be humble? a realistic assessment of who you are and who God is.
When I look out into the ocean when I go to the beach, I get a fairly accurate view of myself in relation to nature, and yet God is over that!
