Dear friend,……..

I have yet to meet a human who doesn’t struggle with pride to one extent or another. Pride is part of our human nature, isn’t it? It goes all the way back to the Garden of Eden when the first humans Adam and Eve fell into sin. It goes back to the devil whose pride caused his fall. And it’s something if we’re honest with which we all have some degree of struggle.

I don’t believe the issue is how much pride we have, but what we do with that pride when the Spirit of God shows us we have it. The Lord warns us against pride throughout the Bible, and He commands us to get rid of it over and again.

When the Lord shows us pride in our hearts and lives, there is only one right way to handle it. Get rid of it! Immediately! We must humble ourselves before the Lord! Not just once. But as often as is necessary while we learn to make humility before Christ a way of life!

Search your heart, friend. May the Lord show you anything in your heart and life – pride included – that dishonors Him. May you seek His forgiveness, purge from yourself the pride and whatever else He shows you, and move forward aspiring to a life of humility before God! AMEN!

Here’s a verse for you!

“And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” Mt. 23:12

Love from His servant,
