"Pride goeth before destruction..."  Pride.  Its a terrifying thing -- it brought down Satan himself,  It can do the same thing to us, spiritually... Wisdom is seeing things from God's perspective, but when pride comes in, wisdom goes out... Pride leads us to abandom prudence and caution in favor of foolishness and the rejection of truth, of God, and often even of others.  we become so self-focused that we allow ourselves to be decieved and even ignore obvious reality.  Pride...many a man has been brought low by this insidious root of evil ... from Nebuchadnezzar to Alexander the Great to Napoleon to Hitler... Pride destroyed them all.  Some repented, some did not.  Nebuchadnezzar spent seven years thinking himself a dumb animal until he came to his senses and returned humbled to his throne.  Others did not all respond quite as well... The "pride problem" is rampant in mankind.  How we deal with it determines whether we, like Nebuchadnezzar or Saint Paul, choose to recognize our place and the place of the God of the Universe, or we continue to fight Him and get cast down to the lowest places possible, as Satan found as he was removed from being second in the heavenly kingdom to awaiting his chains in hell itself.  Pride.  Your choice, your focus... choose humility and wisdom and turn to God or continue to reject wisdom and prudence, focus on self, and await your coming, earned destruction.
