Pride is a sign of our own insecurity and
feelings of inferiority. Pride and inferiority
are actually opposite sides of the same coin and
are both sin, a preoccupation with self that
leaves little room for God's spirit of humility.
Pride wil prevent us from seeing others as God
sees them. Pride's goal is to make us independent
of God. What audacity we possess as humans to think
we can live life on our own when, whether we admit
it or not, we are totally depenendent on God and
even our very next breath is a gift from His hand.
Pride will destroy a person; a proud attitude leads
to ruin. Proverbs 16:18
Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought,
but rather think of yourself with sober judgement,
in accordance with the measure of faith God has
given you. Romans 12:3
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love.
Honor one another above yourselves. Romans 12:10
