The Bible says, “Only by pride cometh contention” (Proverbs 13:10). That truth is borne out in our lives in so many ways. We typically think of this in regard to our relationship with others and the difficulties we have with other people. Certainly, pride is the source of angst in many relationships where troubles exist between two people. We may argue and fuss with one another over differences of opinion or because of hurt feelings, but when our feuds become protracted and last longer than they should, the issue itself is no longer the stumbling block, but rather our pride.
