Humility is a virtue.
Pride is not.
Humility comes when people are secure.
Pride comes when they are insecure.
A humble leader is a confident leader, knowing who they are and what they do.
A prideful leader is an overconfident leader trying to convince other people that they are good enough to be doing what they are doing.
Humility is strength.
Pride is weakness.
The most humble people I know don’t have to prove themselves or hide something.
The most prideful people I know are always proving themselves and hiding something.
Humility is attractive. It makes people want to follow you.
Pride is obnoxious. It causes people to flee from you.
A humble person understands themselves, what they can do well and cannot do well. Humble people are not afraid to take constructive criticism or counsel.
A prideful person hasn’t taken the time to truly know themselves. The pride in them makes them want to be someone else and blame others when weakness appears.
Humble people are responsive to God, themselves and others.
Proud people are resistant. Everyone else is the problem.
Humble people understand their dependence on God and yield to Him.
Proud people are their gods and over emphasize themselves.
It is better to be humble than proud; secure instead of insecure; confident instead of overconfident and responsive instead of resistant.
