PRIDE DOESN’T PAY!
There is no branch of the LORD’S work where pride pays at all! In fact, the biggest failures in the Word of God were the big-shot boys who thought THEY could do it in their natural wisdom, & they went out & fell flat on their faces. Samuel told Saul, “When thou wast LITTLE in thine own sight, God did highly exalt thee!” (1Sam.15:17)–But when Saul became proud, depending on himself & leaning on his OWN wisdom & his OWN arm of flesh instead of the Lord, the Lord had to abase him! “Pride cometh before a fall” (Pro.16:18), & success often precedes failure, & sometimes exaltation comes before humiliation! “Let him that thinketh he standeth, take heed lest he fall!” (1Cor.10:12)
