Thirst for Wisdom

“Pride leads to conflict; those who take advice are wise.” (Proverbs 13:10)

This is so true, isn’t it? When I’m willing to be humble, I’m far more likely to “let things go.” When I’m rising up to confront challenges, to respond to things I don’t agree with, I’m being prideful. I’m saying “My way of thinking is better than your way of thinking and I’m going to prove it. Let the battle begin.”

I am trying to consciously change my way of approaching these situations at work and at home. So far, I’m already seeing that less energy is required to listen to others than to persuade them to my way of thinking.

  1. Dearest…finally we meet 🙂 I just started to read through all the prayers and good wishes sent to us after the accident, and your good name was amongst them. I am touched, and from the bottom of my heart I thank you for your kindness and healing help….with great affection,Braja xx

  2. This is a tough one! I think it will be a lifelong battle for me. We can dust each other off!
