S – Proverbs 16:18 – “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.”
O – Pride (a haughty spirit) goes before destruction (a fall)
A – One of my four-year-old daughter’s primary fears is falling. Last year she wore pants every day to protect her knees from falling. The Bible tells me that pride (over confidence in or attention to my skills, possessions, position or accomplishments) leads to destruction. I want to protect myself from falling. I need to praise God and not myself inwardly and outwardly.
P – Lord, keep me from attributing to myself the glory due to You alone. Let me boast only in You.
Plan A for God is humility. Plan B is humiliation. What plan will you choose?
