Pride vs. Brokenness in Relationships

Woman: Let’s see what’s on the radio.

Announcer: This is Seeking Him, with Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Are you a proud person or a broken person?

Woman: Broken, of course.

Nancy: Your relationships could give you some insight.

Woman: Okay.

Nancy: Proud people find it difficult to discuss their spiritual needs with others.

Woman: Huh? What spiritual needs?

Nancy: But broken people are willing to be open and transparent as God directs.

Woman: Oh.

Nancy: Proud people are quick to blame others.

Woman: The reason I’m not more transparent is my mother’s fault.

Nancy: But broken people accept personal responsibility.

Woman: Yeah, but you don’t know what my mom did.

Nancy: Proud people are defensive when corrected.

Woman: Besides, how do you know that I’m not transparent?

Nancy: Broken people receive correction with a humble, open spirit.

Woman: So now you’re saying that I’m not humble?

Nancy: Proverbs 1:7 says, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.”

Woman: I’ve had enough of this!

Nancy: With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
