pride vs. wisdom.

inspiration: reading through the Bible...

i've been reading through the One Year Chronological Bible.
right now i'm into Solomon's reign, so I'm reading a lot of Proverbs.

a couple that i wrote down yesterday dealt with pride vs. wisdom.

i know that sometimes i tend to take matters into my own hands rather than heeding the advice of friends, mentors, and even worse, God's Word. but as i've grown in my relationship with Christ, i rely more and more on doing what is wise rather than what is "acceptable" by the world's standards.

here are a couple i wrote down:

"When pride comes, then comes disgrace,
but with humility comes wisdom.
-Proverbs 11:2

"Pride only breeds quarrels,
but wisdom is found in those who take advice."
-Proverbs 13:10

Where are you getting your advice and wisdom from - God's word or the world??
