PRIDE IS CONCERNED WITH WHO IS RIGHT; HUMILITY IS CONCERNED WITH WHAT IS RIGHT!   Pride  can be useful in that it helps one to their best in a given task;  we should also take pride in our appearance, theses are the positive aspects of pride.  We are warned in the scripture, “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.”  ( Proverbs 16:18).
Mistakes are a part of life;  as long as you are breathing you are going to mess up.  When you foul up don’t be afraid to admit your wrong.  Dismiss your pride, learn from your mistake and go forward with the determination to learn from what happened. 
Humility is a great virtue because it enables our heart to be tender and pliable.  Christians should have a disposition that includes humility;  consider the words of James.   “Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.”   (James 4:10)
Pride should provide us with confidence not arrogance.  Never be too proud to say your sorry or to do what is right.  “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”  (James 4:6)
I remain your brother, friend and fellow servant,
Bobby L. South
