Pride throws the punch.
Pride pulls the trigger.
Pride cheats on its spouse.
Pride screams, “I deserve better!”
Pride demands credit for all the “good” things it has done,
yet will refuse to repent or admit when it’s wrong.
Pride says, “I will forgive, but I will NEVER forget.”
Pride holds on to the resentment, the hurt and regret.
Pride builds a wall between God and you,
while it whispers in your ear: “Follow your heart; Forget what the Lord has said— do what YOU want to do.”
Pride is the plague which afflicts one and all,
and if it is not surrendered to Jesus Christ,
pride will be the reason for which a person, a church, a city, and a nation will fall.
“Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” ~ Proverbs 16:18
