Swallow Your Pride

Psalm 18:6.

‘In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried out to my God; He heard my voice from His temple, and my cry came before Him, even to His ears.’


Some people find it extremely difficult to admit when they are wrong. Even when it is blatantly obvious that they were at fault, they will drive their stake in the ground and defend it to the death! Relationships have been broken and friendships ended because of foolish pride. Sadly, many don’t see the error of their ways until the damage is done and words that were spoken can never be unsaid. It would have been far better for them to have eaten their words, ground and chewed their ego, and then swallowed their pride, because it would have resulted in a drastically different outcome. Instead of always having to be right, try and see things from another point of view. When you are looking at a situation from a different perspective, things have a way of appearing quite differently. No one is right all the time, except God, so strive to be more like Him. Colossians 3:12 tells us, “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.” Treat others the way you want to be treated. If you want love–be loving. If you want truth–be truthful. If you want to be respected–be respectful. The Bible tells us in Luke 6:31, “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” If you’ve made a blunder, then admit it. A mistake that makes you humble is better than an achievement that makes you arrogant. Most of the time a person’s behavior has more to do with their own internal struggle than it ever did with you, so give grace and mercy. When your ego dies, your soul awakens, so swallow your pride and display a humble, Christ-like spirit. Text: Proverbs 11:2, Proverbs 16:5, Romans 12:16, Jeremiah 9:23
