Let’s talk about PRIDE. The Bible tells us that being prideful is wrong, we are told that Christians are humble servants that don’t boast or become prideful. Is this all the Bible tells us? Is it wrong for us to take pride in some of the things we do.Well as Christians, when we face moral questions like these we must look at scripture.
“But let each one examine his own work, and then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.” Galatians 6:4.
So it is ok to take pride and the tasks we do…right? Well it’s true that having a sense of pride is in us naturally in humans other scripture tells us not to always give in to that pride. Let’s look at the verse before this,
“ For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself” Galatians 6:3.
Yeah, it’s harsh, but the thing is, it’s true! If we become prideful, we think we helped ourselves, we get an “I did this” type of attitude and we forget about God and to give Him credit for all the luxuries many of us have. When we forsake God in our pride He will put us in our place.
“For the day of the Lord of hosts shall come upon everything proud and lofty, upon everything lifted up, and it shall be brought low.” Isaiah 2:12.
“When pride comes, then comes shame; But with the humble is wisdom.” Proverbs 11:2.
That’s all for today!
God bless you and I hope that if you are a struggling young Christian that these little messages help. ~by M.Y.
