Pitiful and to be pitied is that person who thinks that he or she is always right, and that they must have the last word in every argument or situation. Sad to say, such people are to be found among God’s redeemed children. Such an attitude is in plain violation of God’s Word, which says “to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.” The Word also tells us to “let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.” There is never a valid reason for a child of God to be “wise in his own conceit.” Let us never imagine that we have perfect knowledge about anything, nor will we until we see the Lord. “Now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.” Now, in this present life, “if any man think that he knoweth anything, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.” So, “if thou hast done foolishly in lifting up thyself, or if thou hast thought evil, lay thine hand upon thy mouth.”
Our knowledge is limited; So much we do not know; Why should we think we are wise, Above what others know?
