The Proud And The Humble
When the employer came to check up on their work, he was shocked to find different results with the experienced employee. While his intention was good, having him in the company posed as risk for the employer because he had no control over him as he did as he pleased, and the results are not the same as what the company expects. He favored the other one who followed his instructions, so he fired the experienced one and kept him.
Likewise it would be wise to be humble, start everything from scratch, and learn new things from our job training, that way we unlearn any bad habits and ideas that we may have learned in the past. Plus we can absorb new lessons if we have less baggages in our mind.
In relation to our life, we never stop learning as long as we are alive. We must stick with our student mentality and remain humble no matter how experienced we are, for we are bound to make mistakes one way or another for we are only humans. Always be open-minded.
If there’s any being who we can listen to it’s God, for He never makes mistakes, and knows what’s best for us. Without His wisdom, we are bound to live life unsatisfactorily. If we listen to everything that He tells us through our hearts, we are blessed and even rewarded in His kingdom! If we live our lives with pride in our hearts, we won’t ever grow and improve. Life will be miserable for us.
