Proud Wise Guy

Proverbs 3:7-8
    "Do not be wise in your own eyes; 
          Fear the LORD and depart from evil. 
    8      It will be health to your flesh, 
          And strength to your bones."

God calls us to not be wise in our own eyes. Now, everyone thinks they are right about whatever opinion it may be. The point isn’t to think you are probably wrong, but to not think of yourself more highly than you ought. To consider others above yourself. There is a way of being unteachable, not willing to consider or seek the counsel of others – "that wouldn’t be worth it, they aren’t as wise as me," is what we’re thinking deep down. This is an evil before God, and we must depart from evil. Humility brings health. Submission brings strength.
