Pride

The other day I was reading my facebook newsfeed and Jim Tune, a minister in Canada, posted the following:  “To be proud is to fight God for His glory.”  It’s easy to have an inflated sense of importance isn’t it?  But pride is a deadly sin.  It usually makes us unteachable.  It kills our growth and destroys our relationships.  The Bible says, “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall. (Proverbs 16:18) The Scripture also says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble” (James 4:6).  Humility is the only answer for pride.  Jesus, the God/Man, Himself shows us the way of humility.  He left the glories of heaven for the suffering of earth.  He left unimaginable riches to become a poor Palestinian peasant.  He left continuous worship for contempt from the very creatures He made.  He took off a crown and accepted a cross.  Jesus, the one who had every right to be proud, became humble simply because He loved us.    This week I pray each of us will walk in the way of Jesus.

Under His Mercy,

Derek Dickinson, Minister
