I hated to admit it so I just kept on driving. I even picked up the pace to prove my point. I was not going to admit I was lost nor that I had noticed I had missed the well- marked exit. I was hoping my dear wife would fall asleep and I could make a U-turn and make up lost time.
Pride is an invisible sin. When it becomes apparent it is still tough to try to conquer. When I think I have it under control, I take pride in the fact that I have done so.
My pride I can’t see. My humility I shouldn’t see. I have it in reverse, so I just keep driving and hoping she will fall asleep. I brag about my humility. I deny my prideful spirit. God doesn’t sleep during this trip. He notices my persistence in prideful sin.
Pull over and say I am sorry. You are right. I was wrong. We are heading in the wrong direction. Let’s do it your way God.
Proverbs 16:18-19 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. KJV
Proverbs 14:12 There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death. NKJV
