WHAT IS WRONG WITH PRIDE ?

Perched high up a tree a crow held a Camembert in its beak.
Attracted by the smell a fox called up to the crow
"If your voice is as beautiful as you plumage
You would be the most wonderful bird in the forest."
The crow sang out as loud as he could,
And the fox went off with the cheese.
This ancient fable by La Fontaine explains why crows keep on singing
It does not explain why human pride is as stupid as the crow and very
Centuries before La Fontaine the apostle Peter wrote : "All of you must
clothe yourselves with humility in your dealings with one another, for
'God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble'" (1 Peter 5:5).
