What Will Derail You?

October 16, 2012

There are several things that can derail you in your life. However, one stands out above all the rest in derailing careers and lives – pride. As Proverbs 16:18 states, “Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall.”

So, resist pride – walk in humility if you truly want to impact others and the world around you. Otherwise, you may find yourself sitting on the sidelines.
