Pride destroys people, marriages, families, and futures. Pride prevents the change of heart we are seeking. When we feel proud we justify our behaviors, blame others, and refuse to let anyone into our hearts. We stop growing. Our spirits shrivel and shrink and grow mean. Humility is the antidote for pride. Humility nurtures relationships and allows us to look honestly at ourselves and to change and grow. If we look honestly at our “hearts” we know when they are feeling proud and when they are feeling humble. Nurture the humility. Pride is a dead end.
