Pride – Arrogance and Conceit

Message in the picture

“Pride – Everyone proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord; Though they join forces, none will go unpunished.” Proverbs 16:5 (NKJV)

Scripture for the day

1 Peter 5:5-11 (BBE) And in the same way, let the younger men be ruled by the older ones. Let all of you put away pride and make yourselves ready to be servants: for God is a hater of pride, but he gives grace to those who make themselves low. 6 For this cause make yourselves low under the strong hand of God, so that when the time comes you may be lifted up; 7 Putting all your troubles on him, for he takes care of you.

8 Be serious and keep watch; the Evil One, who is against you, goes about like a lion with open mouth in search of food; 9 Do not give way to him but be strong in your faith, in the knowledge that your brothers who are in the world undergo the same troubles. 10 And after you have undergone pain for a little time, the God of all grace who has given you a part in his eternal glory through Christ Jesus, will himself give you strength and support, and make you complete in every good thing; 11 His is the power for ever. So be it.

Thought for the day

A person filled with pride does not have or display humility or modesty. “…All of you should be very humble with each other [clothe yourselves with humility toward one another]. [Because:] “God is against [resists; opposes] the proud, but he gives grace to the humble.1” Pride is sin when a person boasts about and takes credit for what they have, what they have done, how they look and / or what they know. We must humbly acknowledge God, the creator of all things 2, “The earth and everything on it belong to the Lord. The world and its people belong to him.3” “Is there any reason to consider yourselves better than others? What do you have that you didn’t receive? If you received it as a gift, why do you boast like it is something you achieved on your own?4” Be blessed my friends—Tim.
