When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom (v2).
They say pride has 1000 faces, but the disgrace that follows always seems to feel the same: horrible!
When the Holy Spirit, my conscience or a friend points out my pride, that sinking feeling is awful. When I have been prideful in public, that makes the feeling of disgrace even worse.
The truth is, because of my pride, I still try to portray myself as a 'got it together Christian'. For the public record, I am not a 'got my walk with God together' Christian. I am the worst sinner I know (because I know myself the best).
But I am forgiven. And my primary identity is not as sinner or a forgiven sinner. My primary identity is in Christ and the Bible describes me as a saint (Eph1v1).
Disgrace will always track pride, yet a humble, biblical understanding of who we in Christ, brings great wisdom.
