Most emotions have a good side and an ugly side. Pride has a very ugly side.
It's good to be proud to be an American or proud of your children (within reason).
Ugly pride builds senseless walls, it is hurtful, and it stops us from becoming better people.
It just makes us look stupid.
It is a time waster.
It is a dream killer.
It's embarrassing when I think how ugly it looks on me, for I have worn it too often.
It also robs us of a beautiful relationship with God.
Pride is ugly, humility is lovely.
We are all people. People are both beautiful and flawed.
Humble people admit their shortcomings and are thankful for their strengths. They look to God to see their incredible value, not from other people.
That reminds me of this book
By pride comes nothing but strife,
But with the well-advised comes wisdom.
Don't be driven by pride. You are too beautiful to waste your life on something so ugly.
