Conceit and the Bible

Proverbs 26:12“Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? There is more hope of a fool than of him."

Vanity and conceit make people think that they are wise, but the reality is that their conceit has made them a fool. When we are full of conceit and pride, we think we are wiser than other people and God. We are basically a know-it-all. As the definition of conceit says, we have an “unduly high opinion of ourselves”. Conceited people are fools because they have fooled themselves into thinking themselves wise. 

Conceit is foolish thinking because God is the only one that knows everything. When we are full of conceit, we are basically judging ourselves perfect or “good enough” based on our own knowledge. Instead of seeking God's truth, we have made up our own truth. A conceited person is even more than a fool. He is also a person that has no real hope because he is at odds with God (Proverbs 26:12“Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? There is more hope of a fool than of him"). Our folly of conceit is not a time for self-glory, but a time for repentance and getting in right relationship with God.5
