Pride is the act of feeling pompous in the sight of people. Pride can take you down and can take you to a level you wouldn't want to be. It can make you look just like a fool and someone who does not have a passion for people.

Ada was a girl who initially had human feelings. She does not look down on people while still in secondary school. This was because her parents were just normal salary earners and average people. She loves to mingle with people and do make friends easily.

The father, Mr Johnson, on the other hand, has some friends who he once loved with. One of them is now I'm a better place to help him out. He is the head of an oil company and seeing him on Facebook after searching for his name, made him put calls across to him. Sometimes friends are the best ones should be glad to make. He called Mr Johnson to pay him a visit to his office which got Mr Johnson so much happy since he is going to use this as an opportunity to get work that he has been searching for all these days. God was so kind, he went to his friend's office as he instructed and at the particular time. On getting there, his friend took him for an outing where they had a lot been discussed.

They discussed a lot and about how he can be placed in a position. So, he was given a job in which he was receiving a tangible amount of money. This made him invest his money after spending some years in the work. Mr Johnson began to make money to his peak just because of the business strategy he has. He never wanted to relent in the quest of looking for money. So, he made his family the best and raised his family from been seen as one average family to a family that can be called rich. He was rich and so, his daughter began to put up a character that was so strange to everyone. The person who was so much friendly now turned to be someone who is a terror.

Mr Johnson built a mansion and bought a fancy car for his daughter, Ada. This increased the level of pride in her. She was no longer playing with anyone and does not want to have a friend who does not fall on the same level as her. So, she stylishly pursues all the friends she had but is left with just one who was the Mastermind of her recent behaviour. She became someone who many always see as a wicked being. Ada became so dreadful to the extent that men began to run away from her. She has never, for once, have a guy and not even a man chased after her since she began her madness of pride.

Sometimes, when you don't have money, no one will see your true character. People may be wicked inside after seeing money, while some may be so kind after passing through hardship to have made their money.

A guy who mistakenly spoke to her was disgraced. She poured the guy the bottle of water with her. Ada told the guy that he is not of her standard, and so guys have been running away from her. This means she has been finding it so difficult to have a boyfriend. Her dad told to take over one of his company that he so much invested on, and so she was so much happy to have accepted the offer. Now, she became more and stronger in her attitude of pride. She never allowed anyone who is of low class or anyone who is in her office to rest. She was tormenting all her workers until the dad witnessed it by himself. He talked to her to the brim and even to the extent of letting her know that if she continues with this habit of her, she will find it difficult to see a man who she can call her husband. She was shocked after hearing what the dad said and could not say a word.

After some days, a guy disguises himself just like a rich guy. He pretended to be rich and rented a car and a large apartment. The guy's aim is just to show her that her pride can be cut short by a mere poor guy just like him. He dressed to the brim and walked to her office as someone ready to give her company contract. After calling for him, the guy used her and came back, showing her his true identity. Ada after knowing this was shocking and could not say anything other than crying. Can cry solve the problem? The answer is NO. The deed has been done, and her pride was taken away by a mere poor guy. What a disgrace!!!

Pride can bring you down and can make you look like idiots in the sight of many.

I agree with you. Pride can't take us anywhere. Pride is a sign that we are being over-confident of something. But it's not good. God doesn't want us to live full of pride in our hearts because that leads to other sinful things like envy, jealousy, and hatred toward others.

Pride is a destroyer. Never allow yourself to be proud, it is a sign of foolishness. Just like in Ada's case, you never know what a person can do. Lower yourself, let God raise you up through your humility and good works.
