Where there is conflict, pride is present. 9.15.11

Pride leads to conflict…. (Proverbs 13:10a NLT)

Humility is a virtue that is not very esteemed these days, especially in highly competitive environments of sports or business, for it is looked upon more as a weakness than strength. Yet from my observations, pride appears to always be the one obstacle that creates all the issues, no matter if it is personally or professionally. Where there is conflict pride is present, where there is peace humility reigns supreme. Action. My sons, in life when it comes to people, both personally and professional, pursue those with an authentic humble spirit and put distance between those who give evidence of a strong prideful spirit. Pride always creates conflict and will always be the derailing factor for the brightest minds and most talented people in any area of life. Diligently cultivate a true humble spirit in your life doing battle with pride, always viewing the needs of others as more important then your own.
