While in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Seth Dahl visits the shipyard that built the Titanic. The landmark serves as a reminder of the dangers of pride.


Before the Titanic made its maiden voyage in 1912, the ship was touted as “unsinkable.” Boasting new technology and modern advances, the ship garnered the attention and admiration of the world, that is until its fateful end only days after launching.

When in Belfast, Northern Ireland, author, speaker and pastor Seth Dahl visits the shipyard where the Titanic was assembled. Reminded of the tragic tale, he unpacks some truths that benefit us today.

Few other stories offer such a vivid reminder of how pride can lead to destruction. Humans are very apt to boast of their greatness and infallibility, explains Seth. In the video, he reminds us of the wisdom found in Proverbs 16:18 “First pride, then the crash—the bigger the ego, the harder the fall.”

When the Titanic sunk, hundreds of people lost their lives.

The pride of those who built and managed the ship resulted in dire and ultimately tragic consequences. Pride is genuinely that dangerous. In what areas of your life do you need to adopt a humbler spirit? How can you protect yourself from preventable suffering that pride can blind us to?

Watch the latest video from our Say Something Profound series above to hear more of Seth’s take on the story.
