There are 7 Deadly Sins: If Governed by “Pride,” Where does “Humility” Come in?

Not many people appreciate feeling like a doormat, but that isn’t what “humility” is about.  Humility is simply being respectful to others and modestly submissive, whereas prideful people feel as if they should arrogantly come first, and always.

When a murder trial begins, one must first ask themselves if the person committed the crime, and secondly, the reasoning behind it.  Although many reasons come to light, so many of them can be focused in on “Pride.”  Seems his wife had embarrassed him one too many times–she had become “American.”

A case in front of a New York court, which begins today, is having difficulty maintaining their jury.  The reason, who knows?  A man commenced to break some sort of record by killing his wife within 47 seconds.  The time it took isn’t the record; Mo Hassan stabbed his wife over 40 times and beheaded her with kitchen cutlery within that short period of time–less than a minute, while their children waited outside in the minivan.

When it comes to pride, sometimes a politician’s arrogance will run through one’s mind. Pride-bearing politicians are voted into office, make all the budget cuts. But what is it when people die due to snowplows being unable to service lower-income areas, businesses and citizens have declared bankruptcy, and all the politicans can provide is indifference shielded by their own pride?

Perhaps the best lesson in pride is for people to use their creative imaginations long enough to put aside what others may think of them.   Humility may be gained by putting themselves in the underdog’s position for a single, miniscule second to consider what someone else is going through, and perhaps drawing a different conclusion.
