Step One in Alcoholics Anonymous
Admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.
Step One in Living Free
I now see [admit] that I, of myself, am powerless, unable to control [manage] my life by myself.
When we live according to our will and best efforts it leads us down a path of humiliation and destruction, but when we live humbly before God, He will bring us to a place of honor.
New Living Translation (NLT)
23 Pride ends in humiliation, while humility brings honor.
