A proud poor man can never be a humble millionaire
Firm, wealth and political power only amplifies who you are
Nobody is proud because he has money, just that he needed money to amplify it.
When you aspire for any level in life, it should be on the platform of a good nature.
When you get to the Zenith and apex of life it will amplify who you really are.
1Cori. 4:7 says
For who makes you differ from another? And what do you have that you did not receive? Now if you did indeed receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it
Jere. 9:24 says
But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.
If you are proud
3 things that should be your watch words
1. No matter what you are, you are not the first
2. You must understand something clearly, whatever you are is not permanent.
you may take the center of stage now, but someone will come up later.
3. What you do to people in the days of your firm, wealth, political power and popularity. what you do to people will be your retirement.
There is a gratuity and pension that Government will not pay you
Life will pay you
And is on the platform of how you treat people on the days of your glory
