Proverbs 18:12

We’ve all heard the expression, “pride goes before a fall.” And we need look no further than Satan to see just how far we can fall. Once one of God’s most beautiful creations, a heart of pride caused the devil to rebel against his Creator, leading to his banishment and eventual destruction. And a self serving heart can take us down the same dark path. For God loves nothing more than humility, as exampled in the life and death of Jesus. And as a fruit of the Spirit, humility keeps our hearts focused on God and others, allows us to be shining reflections of the Lord, and keeps us walking in obedience to God.
