Pride can sneak into every area of your life. If you know you need to mend a broken relationship, pride will lead you to deny that. You may feel convicted about living a sinful lifestyle, but pride will discourage you from admitting it. Pride will tell you, you deserve better. It will keep you from serving others. We must humble ourselves, which is pleasing to God and places your life in a position where God will honor you.
Questions for further thought:
1. When was a time you found someone blinded by their own pride?
2. Did they learn from the consequences?
Challenge: Think hard on something you may be too prideful about in your own life. Pray for wisdom and clarity in seeing those areas.
