Proverbs 11:2 says “When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.” Pride often leads to disaster and foolishness in Proverbs. Dr. Dennis Kinlaw wrote that humility and wisdom are like Siamese twins whose separation brings about death. Humility allows us to open our eyes to observe the whole picture so that we can devise better ways to achieve a better goal. Pride is like a cataract clouding the eye. Pride narrows our view to our own arrogant perspective so we can’t see better ways to a better goal—or even better goals.
