When there is a sufficient amount of evidence that confirms you are making a wrong decision, be willing to stop and consider another course of action. Do not let your pride destroy your credibility with your spouse and others.

Consider the following passages of scriptures –

Proverbs 11:2 “When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom.” (ESV)

Proverbs 18:22 “A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.” (ESV)

Proverbs 14:1 “The wise woman builds her house, But the foolish tears it down with her own hands.” (NASB)

Proverbs 13:6 “Every prudent man acts from knowledge, but a fool exposes folly.” (WEB)

2 Kings 5:1-14 – Take a moment and turn your bible to this passage of scripture about Naaman, who did not let his pride keep him from making the right decision.

1 Samuel 25:2-38 – This is a much longer passage of scripture, but a great example of someone who would not consider the evidence that proved his course of action to be wrong. The foolish husband of this passage suffered harsh consequences for being unwilling to consider another course of action that was suggested to him by his wife.
