Stupid Pride

Son,

When I was a Senior in high school I quit my office job working for your grandpa Bruno. I went to work at Sideburns restaurant as a dishwasher just to avoid being controlled by him. The only reason I wanted to work for my dad in the first place was to get extra credits at school. If I worked, I would only have to go to school for half the day. Your grandpa wanted me to work the other half that I wasn’t in school. That was a problem for me so I went to wash dirty dishes and clean dirty floors. I only had to work weekends there. Let’s see, giving up plush office job to go wash dishes…… What the heck was I thinking? 

I made it harder on myself just to prove I didn’t need his help. Man, I was stupid!

Dad

1 Peter 5:5
In the same way, you who are younger, submit yourselves to your elders. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because,
“God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”
