Pride is dangerous

“Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us.”‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:3‬ ‭NLT‬

Pride is a dangerous and destructive thing. We succumb to pride when we fail to abide in Him. There is nothing more humbling than spending time in God’s presence. We are reminded of how we are nothing without Him. 

Pride will blind a person to the pitfalls of the enemy. Humility enables us to see and allows us to walk in victory. The more we walk in humility the more we walk in the strength of the Lord. 

There is nothing uglier than a Christian who is filled with pride. They have forgotten where they have come from and gotten their eyes off the Lord. If we desire to be God has called us to be it requires we walk in humility in all things.
