Everyday Pride Stinks
Pride is a difficult sin us to deal with because we don’t think we have it. The only way I can have the patience with difficult people, and those who’ve hurt me, is when I ask God to let me see the person as He does. It’s humbling. James 4:10 says, “Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up.
The signs of pride include an unwillingness to admit fault or a reluctance to take responsibility for one’s actions. Yeah, I know you’re probably thinking of someone who needs to hear this, but that person might be you! Pride wants to do all the talking and none of the listening. Pride doesn’t want to make peace because it’s stubborn and doesn’t want to be instructed and only wants to instruct others. We’re all of equal value in God’s eyes. Let’s not esteem ourselves above the value of another but truly LOVE one another. Stop screaming and start listening. Connect to the heart of another…everyday.
