Pride is something that we always struggle with in our life and we probably always will struggle with our life. We want to live for God but, at the same time we don’t want to hurt our pride. I struggle daily with this. I think to myself, are the people I hang out with cool enough or oh, I don’t want to be seen talking to this person because they aren’t considered cool so instead of reaching out to others, we just walk on by. Little do we know what that person was going through at home. That girl that wears the same thing to school everyday, probably can’t afford clothes and probably doesn’t have the best home life but, here we are too afraid to talk to them because our pride may be hurt. God Says:
“Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord: be assured, he will not go unpunished.” (Proverbs 16:5)
“One’s pride will bring him low, but he who is lowly in spirit will obtain honor.” (Proverbs 29:23)
“But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, ” God opposes the proud but gives grace to humble.”
As you can tell, if we humble ourselves and we are no longer prideful, we will be blessed by God’s grace. However, if we are arrogant and prideful then it will not go unpunished and we will end up paying for it. Therefore, even though it may be difficult sometimes we have to humble ourselves in the Lord.
