Wednesday Matters- August 18, 2021
Pride is a difficult sin us to deal with because we don’t think we have it. Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters. The only way I can have the patience with someone who’s difficult or who hurt me is when I’m able to ask God to let me see the person as He sees them. That’s humbling. I think about James 4:10, “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 may be you! Pride wants to do all the talking and none of the listening. And pride doesn’t want to make peace because it’s so stubborn and doesn’t want to be instructed. It only wants to instruct others. Remember we are all of equal value in God’s eyes so let’s not esteem ourselves above the value of another but really LOVE one another. Stop screaming and begin to listen to connect to the heart of someone else…everyday.
