When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.
Proverbs 11:2 (KJV)
Pride tends to distort our motivations and it clouds our judgement; it keeps us from acting out of true wisdom. God delights in our humility, for it is the humble heart that is most open and receptive to wisdom. When we look to God for wisdom, when we remain open and teachable, we may be certain that we will never be put to shame.
