Weakness vs Pride

In our Sunday Gospel Discussion class someone made the comment about Weakness vs Pride and I love how they described this:

“I think when we have weaknesses we are able to acknowledge them and God is able to help us.” Pride on the other-hand is essentially saying  “Our ways are greater than God’s ways.” And if we shut Him out of our lives, there is not as much that He can do to help us. Though He will always be there waiting. The scriptures often refer to Pride as being the downfall of men, women and even civilizations. Putting down our pride is essentially opening ours ears and being humble enough to recognize we might not always be right. Once our ears are open I believe that is when the transformation and miracles occur. He can’t help us if we aren’t willing to listen.
