This was my daily email Bible verse for today.
“Pride only breeds quarrels, but wisdom is found in those who take advice.”Proverbs 13:10
Is this an area you are struggling with in your life right now?
If the answer is yes, try making a conscious effort to break this cycle.
I am going to give you a word for the day to serve as a reminder to ponder through out the day and to prepare yourself for when you encounter prideful situations.
Word of The DayWisdom
Instead of starting a debate or a quarrel with someone over an issue, take a step back and say, “No!”
This is not worth my effort.
I am going to refuse to be prideful right now.
I don’t need to be.
I don’t need to prove my point to this degree.
I refuse to look badly in this circumstance.
No, instead I am going to make a wise choice to just walk away.
Choose wisely what choices you make.
Seek God’s direction in how to best handle your situation.
Not every situation needs an immediate open mouth insert foot response.
Instead, remember to do this;
Stop… Pray for wisdom… and Allow God to show you how to respond.
If that does not work there is always the distraction method.
Stop… drop… and roll only because that is the one we all remember best.
They may think you are a weirdo and may need professional help, but one thing is for sure… you won’t come across as prideful in your situation. 😂
I’m sorry! I couldn’t resist.
The important key to remember is this, God looks down on those being prideful.
Instead, He wants us to choose wisdom because for every wise choice we make in our life, we will be in His favor and He will bless us for the decisions and choices we make.
I hope this helps for you to start your day with some inspiration, motivation, and just a tiny bit of humor for your day.
Let’s all make wise choices today and say, “no” to anything prideful.
