Pride goes before disaster, and a haughty spirit goes before a fall.  – Prov 16:18

Reflection.  Pride is an inordinate love of self.  A proud person puts other people down, whereas a self-confident person is humble as he proudly raises them up.  In using your talents for others, you show your kindness and love.

Prayer.  Father, You are the giver of all gifts.  I bow humbly before You and pray for the grace to serve You well.
