In Their Own Eyes

Do you see a person wise in their own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for them. Proverbs 26:12

It’s one thing for someone to say, “I’m a pretty wise guy.” It’s entirely different for someone else to tell others about your wisdom. Why? Well, the Bible condemns arrogance and conceit but exalts humility.

In other words, if you have to tell others about your great wisdom (instead of showing them), then it’s a pretty good bet that you’re deceiving yourself.

Again, continue to pray for humility. It’s a tough prayer for many, but yields fantastic results.
