Morals of the Clone Wars 1.15: Trespass

Moral: “Arrogance diminishes wisdom.”

I have noted before how we are wisest when we acknowledge how much we don’t know. Humility is one of the foundations of wisdom. Pride–arrogance–keeps us from truly being wise.

Unfortunately, the church is full of arrogance. How many churches/denominations have divided because someone was too arrogant to admit they might be wrong, to acknowledge that their might be other acceptable views, or that things might need to be rethought.

Let us in the church clothe ourselves with humility and love. Let us throw off arrogance and always seek out wisdom. And let us always remember that arrogance and wisdom cannot work together–they will always be at odds.
