      Proud people are so proud about their supposed humility that they won’t seek any help.
      Pride can be blinding. It is possible to become so prideful and haughty that a person doesn’t even recognize his or her own pride.

      Such pride leads to disgrace: When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom (Proverbs 11:2).

      Likewise, someone who is prideful thinks that he or she knows everything; such a person refuses to receive correction or instruction. Proverbs 13:10 says, Pride only breeds quarrels, but wisdom is found in those who take advice.

      Furthermore, pride leads to and causes destruction: Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall (Proverbs 16:18). This is because proud people are blinded to reality—the reality of their sins.

      Therefore, admit that you have a problem with pride, because otherwise God will be obligated to show you that you have a pride problem. God may have to humble you by humiliating you.

      With all these verses in the Bible warning us not to be prideful, it is no surprise that a man’s pride brings him low, but a man of lowly spirit gains honor (Proverbs 29:23).
