Arrogant lips are unsuited to a fool — how much worse lying lips to a ruler! Proverbs 17:6
There are fools and there are arrogant people. They are not always the same, but when they are one in the same, it would go well for us to just step back and observe. They will make foolish mistakes, though they might not be humble enough to admit them.
A classic example is someone who’s drunk and thinks he is superman. YouTube is full of videos of these people. Satan has blinded the minds of these people into thinking that losing control of your senses and inhibitions is such a wonderful feeling.
But lest we think that foolishness is reserved for those who drink and take drugs, we might want to step back and take a look at our own attitudes and speech. If we’re not careful, though, without even knowing it we can exhibit a smug attitude when speaking about spiritual things with others.
Pray that you will recognize it before you speak it.
