I was working on my quad (that hasn’t run in about a year) at my friend’s house. I knew it was a carburetor problem, so I felt very confident that it was going to be an easy job. My friend Franky thought other wise.
I began to aggressively joke with him how easy it was going to be. We cleaned the carburetor, put it back together… and it didn’t start. Yes, my friend gave it to me.
I then asked God to forgive me of my pride and asked Him to show me how to fix it.
By 1:30 am I was riding it home in about a foot of snow.
God is serious about pride.
“When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.” Proverbs (NIV)
