Pride and Humility
Pride is only a sin when it gets out of balance. You are proud of an accomplishment at work, great! It will inspire you to continue to strive for success. But, you think you are the only one who can save your family, your company or the world, calm down, and show some humility! A healthy dose of humility will make you understand that you are not the center of the world, nor the center of your workplace or your family. While God loves you and many people appreciate you, you still are replaceable, just like everybody else. You are not always right, sometimes you are wrong big time. You make mistakes. You forget or ignore important things. You don’t love your neighbor as much as you could, and you do not love God with every core of your being. There we go, you are a normal human being, and a healthy dose of humility is in order. That said, too much humility is not advisable. Do stand up for yourself, your dreams and aspirations, and boldly work for God’s kingdom here on earth. Balance is the key.
