In what way will he lift you up? Look at Joseph, Jacob's son. He was prideful and his brothers sold him into slavery. He became humble and learned and was lifted into a position of power enabling him to save his family during a famine.
Will you save the world by being humbly teachable? Most likely not, but you will be better liked and your witness will be stronger. You will be more effective in what you do.
I do deep water aqua aerobic twice a week. The leader has had no training or experience. Another woman who has a certificate in water aerobic instruction offered her some advice. The leader wouldn't listen, rejecting all the other woman knew. Now we don't benefit from what knowledge the woman had because our leader is not teachable. If we say anything to our leader we may lose her because she may take offense. How prideful and stupid. We who take the class can see it. Many of us know more than the leader does. We would all be better off if the leader became wise and willing to learn.
Again a verse from James... 3:13
Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.
