On Pride: A Social Commentary

Posted on November 1, 2013 in Blog | 2 comments

“It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels.” (St. Augustine)  


As we recognize and celebrate our gifts and accomplishments, we must remain humble in order for God to use us. There is a vast difference between a healthy dose of self-confidence and any portion of diseased pride.

We must never fail to honor our Creator for everything. No one is self-made; we do nothing on our own. When we feel the urge to boast, let us choose humility over arrogance.

 Whatever we feed will grow, so let us feed the spirit with praise and worship, and starve false perceptions of ourselves. If we keep our ears tuned to the still, small voice within and listen for the tugs on our hearts, we will humble the ego and become as angels.


  1. I feel so ashame, for tonight is the first time I have entered your website. You are a very insightful lady. You can light up someones life and this is a great gift. Whenever we write and people are moved by what you say, then that is a gifted writer. If you challenge someone to reach out and acquire the desire to change then you have achieved an ultimate goal.

    Keep on doing what you are doing, for others will be just as touched as I am. Let time be your friend. See you soon.

    • My dear friend, Betty, I am so happy that you visited the site. Your applause means so much to me. Your friendship means even more. Thank You!
