Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall. Proverbs 16:18 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
I know an elderly woman that her husband is having health problems. She knows she cannot take care of him and her children are in weak health so they cannot help her. The man is constantly in and out of the hospital.
A friend suggested she contact social services and they will bring in health care helpers to bathe him and change his diapers. They will consult her on how to make proper meals not just for him but for her as well. These services are free.
When he tried to convince her to contact this agency she admitted that she should but would not.
When he asked why she informed her that she was too proud to ask for help.
So, because of her pride her husband suffers and the children suffer watching their dad suffer. How many times do the innocent suffer because of someone else s pride?
How many times to they cause their own suffering?
Pride is arrogant selfishness which only reward is pain and misery. Joseph a son of Jehovah
If you suffer from pride please pray that Jehovah will send The Holy Spirit to cleanse it from your heart. Your mental and physical health will improve tremendously.
P. S The hospital finally had enough and informed her they are sending in health care assistants whether she like it or not. It has only taken two years but I am glad they were firm with her.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher 2 Timothy 3:16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation ) send The Holy Spirit to teach the proud that their arrogance not only hurts them but those with whom they love as well.
I humbly beseech You in the name of my humble big brother Jesus Christ. Amen
May the poison of pride never infect your spirit. Joseph a son of Jehovah This article and photo @ Joseph a son of Jehovah 2021
