Pride Goes Before a Fall

The second thing, that really touched me in the Kungfu Panda movie was, the teacher being beaten by his pet student like a dog. I really felt like smashing the student to extinction. The teacher gave his everything, his knowledge, his love to his pet student and he repays it by harming the teacher.

The reason?

The teacher denied the scroll, that gives the power to become the student, the dragon warrior.

The student was none other than a tiger, a very strong and smart tiger, whom, the teacher brought up from obscurity taught him all the techniques of Kungfu and made him capable of killing or handling thousands of opponents in one stroke, if we are in his position, naturally, we too would have a feeling of who is there to defeat us. Have you heard about the saying, 'Pride goes before a fall'? That is apt in this student's case. He had a feeling, that no one can defeat him and that pride made him lose his senses, his way of behaviour and that is what happens, to all proud people. Then do you know what the consequence would be?

Simple, fall into the deep gorge of anonymity forever and ever. So my suggestion is, if you are very confident of your talent, then why don't you try to master a new one, its not very easy to perfect a talent, but at least it will pull us back to Earth as a normal human and from being proud of our Self. Then we can always fly sky high. How?

Humility has a tendency of giving us high scores in the eyes of others. Want to bet?

See you tomorrow.

Until then, take care, bye.

  1. PRIDE IS THE ERADICATOR OF INTELLECT

    Pride can cause you to appear intellectually challenged. The devil had a pride problem. The devil knew that Jesus was God in the flesh, and he still tried to tempt Jesus to sin. [Matthew 4:1-11]

    PRIDE CAN CAUSE YOU TO APPEAR INTELLECTUALLY CHALLENGED.

    Pride destroys the faculty for understanding.

    Pride hinders the power of discernment.

    Pride is a road-block to clear thinking.

    Pride clouds our judgment.

    Pride restricts our comprehension.

    Pride causes us to think we are smarter than God.

    Pride opens the avenue for us to believe man-made doctrine.

    2 Peter 3:16 as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things , in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction.

    Pride renders men unteachable and unstable and causes them to distort the truth, and believe the false doctrine of others, to their own destruction.

    When we study God's word relying on our own understanding; rather than asking God to show us HIS truth we become a victim of are own pride.

    Proverbs 3:5-7 Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight. 7 Do not be wise in your own eyes. Fear the Lord and turn away from evil.

    DO NOT BE WISE IN YOUR OWN EYES.

    PRIDE IS THE ERADICATOR OF INTELLECT!
