Reflections and Insights Into Proverbs 11 verse 2

Todayís power verse can be found in verse two of Proverbs 11: [When] pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly [is] wisdom.

Letís define a prideful person. A prideful person is someone who believes their worth is more than those around them. This person also expects others to treat him/her with that presumption of how much s/he is presumably worth. And when they arenít treated as highly as they presume they should be, they generally act in ways that are rather, letís say, ugly. And as the old saying goes, God doesnít like ugly! Acts of pride are those that are contradictory to what God is the right way.

Letís define what a humble (lowly) person is. In Numbers 12:3 we are told that Moses was the meekest man on earth. Do you know who wrote that? Moses! One could read that and think: ĒNow that IS NOT humble!Ē But we are the ones with the wrong definition of humble.

A person of meekness isnít one that keeps their head low with soft speech and full of shyness. A truly humble person is one who simply agrees with God. S/He is someone who acknowledges that God is the Most High God and that there is no other. And if there is no other, then there is no higher authority, is there?

The fall comes when we take the place of God in our lives. Be wise and stay in meekness by coming into agreement with God. If He says you can, then who are you to argue with Him?
