Proverbs 16:18 If you are proud, you will be destroyed. If you are proud, you will fall.
With humility comes wisdom and with wisdom comes honor.
Before coming to The Salvation Army Bridge Program I was also in a rehab in Rockingham in Western Australia. Where I learned all the right things and did all the wrong things. I remember the Director saying to me “I hope I am around when you finally get serious about recovery. It will be something to watch.”
I never knew what he was talking about but I do now. I was so proud of my achievements I was a relapse waiting to happen. When it did I fell further than I have ever fell before. The glory for my recovery today goes to God. I am just a guy who made a decision to stop and trust Him
What The Bible Says
If anyone respects and fears God, he will hate evil. For wisdom hates pride, arrogance, corruption, and deceit of every kind. Proverbs 8:13
When pride comes, shame follows. But wisdom comes to those who are not proud. Proverbs 11:2
From within, out of men’s hearts, come evil thoughts of lust, theft, murder, adultery, wanting what belongs to others, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, pride, and all other folly. Mark 7:21-22
- Are you proud of your recovery or thankful to for it?
