Proverbs 13:10 – Pride Causes Fights

Where there is strife, there is pride, but wisdom is found in those who take advice. – The Bible, Proverbs 13:10

Some places where else this is discussed:

Prov. 9:9, 11:2

My thoughts:

Why am I so full of pride? I have nothing to be proud about! Everything I have and know and believe has been gifted or learnt from someone else. My skill and ability and all else come from God.


As this Proverbs states, where there are arguments and quarreling, a little examination will prove pride is at work. Pride only gets us into a fight about who is wiser. To gain wisdom we ought to be open again to what others we trust have to say. Humbleness can give us so much more in the end.

Thanks for reading! Pete.
