Pride and Destruction #186

Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. (Proverbs 16:18)

The dangers of pride are legion. Pride destroys so many things, tantamount among them is your immortal soul. In the process, as pride is allowed to live in your heart it will destroy your reputation, your godly influence and your integrity. Arrogance proves fatal to friendships, marriages, family relations, the brotherly bonds of Christians, life’s joy and heaven’s hope. Simply put, “When pride comes, then comes shame; But with the humble is wisdom” (Proverbs 11:2). Give up pride or it will destroy you. Live today in humble obedience to God, and be blessed. “Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up” (James 4:10).
