Arrogance will let you down - Proverbs 3

When we think that we have all bases covered and we are confident in our own ability, that is when we are walking on thin ice. The wisdom of our own 'eyes' can be very different from what God requires of us. This is the warning that comes from Solomon in Proverbs 3.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil." - Proverbs 3:5-7

I have also learnt over the years to ask for wisdom from Godly people. It is amazing how God speaks through his servants. If you are in a tight spot today, ask God to guide you and TRUST in the Lord to get your through this tough time. Don't rely on your wisdom, but lean on God's understanding.

"The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing." - Socrates

Living in Grace
