Pride is what someone earns not achieves; however, persecution sometimes stands in the way of pride and that's when pride becomes an achievement.
- Chapman Hester
Many times people say that "pride goeth before the fall", but what if the fall goes before the pride? Does that mean you're just going to fall again? Right now it seems as though life keeps beating everyone down, people are struggling left and right, and there isn't an end in sight. With the economy the way it has been, and people struggling, people who have felt downed by life have the chance to either rise from the ashes of their life, or let it beat them into the ground. Pride truly is earned when someone who against all odds rises to the top, and with that comes pride in ones accomplishments. Without the accomplishments, and success, one can still feel pride in the daily tasks they do, trying their best is all anyone can ask, and whether or not they succeed the fact they tried is more than most people ever do in a lifetime. So keep trying, and never give up no matter how bad things seem, giving up only results in nothing happening...
The pride that the Bible speaks of is not the Pride one takes in their accomplishments. It is haughtiness that looks down at others and their accomplishments while putting one's own on a pedestal. The haughty person does not recognize their limitations, and magnifies the flaws of others.
