Proud Versus Humble

Proud, unbroken people
- have self-righteous, critical, fault-finding spirits
- look down on others
- are independent; have self-sufficient spirits
- maintain control; must have their way
- have to prove they are right
- desire to be served
- are driven to be recognized and appreciated
- are quick to blame others
- are concerned about what others think
- wants to be sure no one finds out about their sin
- have a hard time saying, "I was wrong. Will you forgive me?"

Humble, broken people
- are compassionate; have forgiving spirits; look for the best in others
- esteem all others before themselves
- have dependent spirits; recognize others' needs
- surrender control
- are willing to yield the right to be right
- are motivated to serve others
- are thrilled to be used at all; are eager for others to get the credit
- accept personal responsibility; can see where they are wrong
- knows that all that matters is what God knows
- are willing to be exposed; know once broken, there's nothing to lose
- are quick to admit fault and to seek forgiveness
