Day 142: Guard against it! There is one thing that you should guard yourself against in all your relationships as well as your marriage. That one thing is PRIDE.
Pride builds up walls that prevent open, intimate and loving relationships. Pride can cause a person to have an unhealthy sense of self-importance over others. Remember the Bible story of the Tower of Babel and what happened to those prideful people?
Instead, we should be a people of humility. Humility deflates our unhealthy sense of self, puts the focus on the other person and removes the tension and competitiveness in our relationships.
In our marriages, if we have humility we have an open and unselfish heart, free to love our mate unconditionally. That is what true love is after all.
One of my favorite songs is “Humble and Kind” by Tim McGraw. It reminds us to do all those things we were taught to do in kindergarten. I think our world needs to take a lesson in humility!
Some wise words from the Bible, “Be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love,” Ephesians 4:2.
