Arrogance can be the source of two opposite ways of behaving. Some people have such a high opinion of themselves that want nothing else to do with other people. Alternatively, there are those whose arrogance leads them to want power and control over others.
The opposite of arrogance is humility. Humility is the awareness that everything we have is a gift, and that other people are equally important.
Today, contemplate humility for at least five minutes. In what ways would your life be enhanced if you had more humility?
(see Vilna Gaon - Proverbs 8:13; Rabbi Pliskin - "Consulting the Wise")
