My friend Rev. Walter Albritton sends out a message on a weekly basis that always has some wise and sound counsel. Recently Walter discussed Pride and Arrogance and stressed that pride can be very dangerous. Being proud of a good thing is healthy, but Walter says that power and affluence tend to produce the wrong kind of pride. When arrogance takes over, a person – regardless of social standing or position – is bound for an eventual fall and one that can get ugly. Humility is a virtue that we should all strive for. Jesus is our best example of how humility is the cure for prideful arrogance. Humility – as Walter put it – “can be rare, but it is the only cure for the ugly arrogance that blocks out receiving the spiritual blessings that are available to us.” My mama used to tell me when I was very young that no person should ever “get too big for their britches” and she wasn’t talking about weight. My mama was right and her advice is something that has stuck with me since that time and I pray that it stays with me.
