The Danger Zone

Have you ever stopped to consider what is at the base of the sin of PRIDE? One of the most dangerous places we can live is in the depths of PRIDE. Consider the following:
  • P--People will be hurt (Proverbs 11:2)
  • R--Relationships are strained (Isaiah 9:9)
  • I--I am the only focus (Psalm 10:2)
  • D--Destruction will follow (Proverbs 16:18)
  • E--Evil things defile man (Mark 7:21-23)

It is very easy at times to fall into this trap. Every aspect of our lives, family, work, religion, can be infected with this horrible disease know as PRIDE. Let's remember today the dangers of buying into the lie of Satan. The lie which says human PRIDE is ok. Let's remember our reliance upon the Lord and boast in HIM, not in ourselves or our situations.
