Swallowing our Pride

I was thinking about pride the other day while driving. I'm doing a lot of driving these days, back and forth to a music festival, and it gives lots of time to contemplate.

Specifically, I was thinking about how to get rid of pride and how sometimes, one has to, to use the expression, "swallow your pride".

It occurred to me that swallowing my pride is rather like taking medicine. I know it has to be done so I need to face up to it, open up wide and swallow fast. The more quickly I take the medicine, the faster I will get better.

Is there something God is calling you to do that requires swallowing some pride? Take it like medicine - open wide, do it quickly and see what He will do in your life as a result of your obedience.
