The Pride Paradox

A man’s pride will bring him low, but the humble in spirit will retain honor (Proverbs 29:23).

Looking down can bring you low.

Here’s another of the paradoxes of the Bible. Wherever we put ourselves, high or low, we will end up the opposite. Jesus Christ put it this way: “And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted” (Matthew 23:12).
