Pride indeed comes before the fall. One of my fave songs is: "humble thyself in the sight of the Lord...and He shall lift you up! higher and higher and He, shall lift you up". Humility/meekness is indeed a wonderful virture! and pride is so very destructive.

I love the example of Moses. Think Moses is regretting his decision now? to forsake the pleasures of the world and follow God? ha! Lets focus on the eternal! this life will pass away!

I'm not married, regarding Provs, but if God's will for my life is to marry, may I be a blessing and joy to my husband, not a quarrlesome, constant drip. (and vice vs!). But, Paul did say it is better to remain single. ;) My dad is a widower and some of the women he has dated, he's sure glad he didnt marry them...and i remember him quoting this Prov, haha (and I have to agree!!!)

I had pride many years ago and was quite a ways away from God, He took away my reason for pride and brought me down, not as far as Tyre, but by His Grace, I am again His, an awesome God of second chances. When we have much we can get prideful, when we have little, it's easier to depend on God. Thanks be to God. I'd rather be where I am now than when I had more and was away from Him .I appreciate the important things and people in my life so much more.
