Devotion – Proverbs 26

S – Do you see a person who is wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him. 

 Proverbs 26:12 CSB

O – Commentary: Haughtiness cultivates pride. It leads to failure because it does not allow for change in the face of criticism. Humility learns from others and leads to the honor of success.

 New Living Translation Study Bible 

A –  This is a pretty strong statement.  It definitely speaks to pride and arrogance.  It also speaks to the principle that when we view our own intelligence, skill or cunning is centered on us, we are worse off than those who are stupid or deceived.  

R – Lord, help me to be wise and humble today.  I am nothing without you and all that you have given me.
