Only by Pride

Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom (Proverbs 13:10)

If you stop to think about this verse you will notice it has two segments.

First segment. Only by pride cometh contention. My son made a very sobering thought on the subject. When you judge others, it is only because you think you are better than they are, he said. What you are really saying is that you are better than they are, that you do things better than they do and that you are a better person. That is what self-righteousness is all about, he added.

The second segment is: "but with the well advised is wisdom".
A contentious character is contrasted by the well advised.

Sometimes, if not many times, yeah if not always, we do not have all the details that surround a certain circumstance, or the many factors involved. Our thoughts and opinions of others could change drastically if we are well advised of all the various issues at play.

That is why the Bible says: BUT with the well advised is wisdom.
