Humility is not one of Eugene’s strongest traits. It’s probably not in his traits bucket. Then again, who of us can claim to have gobs of humility? If we profess such, humility goes out of the window.
Strange how pride and humility cannot exist in the same person at the same time. It’s almost as if they have physical attributes; like only one person being able to sit in a chair at a time.
Playing on that metaphor, we tend to play musical chairs with our pride and humility. We adjust to fit the situation, our convenience, and sense of self-worth. Unfortunately, pride leaves us feeling empty and alone.
All in all, it’s good to admit our mistakes. That’s not a sermon as much as it’s a confession.
