Finding Hope, Not Hope - So, For Your Soul
Finding Hope, Not Hope - So, For Your Soul 

                              Pride      

Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him. Proverbs 26:12
 
 
Price is an ongoing,
prevailing sin.
It spills out of our hearts
and creeps into everything,
unless we recognize
and repent of it.
 
If we fail to deprive its power,
it grows stronger.
Pride controls our thoughts and actions, and disregards God's presence,
His Word
and His sovereign administration.
 
Pride leads us to think our lives are determined solely by our free will,
with absolutely NO divine intervention.
 
Our unbridled thoughts and actions puff us up in praise of our victories
and clever accomplishments.
 
As Christians we must be vigilant to recognize how strong pride really is
and how it separates us
from sweet fellowship
with our Savior
and with others.
 
Pride goes before destruction,
and a haughty spirit before stumbling
(Proverbs 16:18).
