Everyday Me, Myself and I
Pride is a difficult problem for us to deal with because it hides. Pride deceives us and causes us to think we do not have it which is exactly the hope of the enemy so he can bring destruction into our lives. Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters. Obadiah 1:3 tells us, “The pride of your heart has deceived you.” “Yeah,” I think, “Me, Myself and I are my greatest problems.” So much of the time I’ve been full of myself when I need to be full of God!
Pride and love do not mix. Love is not proud and boastful, nor does it keep a record of the hurt from others. Love “shakes it off.” Love doesn’t look down on others but how often do others who feel bad about themselves put someone else down hoping they’ll feel better? I think this happens a lot. Love values every individual. Let’s be full of love and acceptance for others, we all are of value and significance as God tells us…everyday.
