Proverbs 30:11-15

"There are those who curse their fathers
and do not bless their mothers;
those who are pure in their own eyes
and yet are not cleansed of their filth;
those whose eyes are ever so haughty,
whose glances are so disdainful;
those whose teeth are swords
and whose jaws are set with knives
to devour the poor from the earth,
the needy from among mankind.

The leech has two daughters.
'Give! Give!' they cry."

Arrogance & Pride
These verses are ugly to listen to and we shy away from people who have such behavior. If we could turn these verse to the positive it would read like this:

*Honor your father & mother.
*Recognize that we are ALL sinners needing God's forgiveness.
*Walk humbly with your friends & family and share the love God has given unto you.
*Take captive every thought and make it obedient to Christ, that other's would recognize that God is your heavenly Father.
