Pride

PRIDE

Pride–an abomination to the Lord
I wish I wasn’t guilty
But I’ve been there before
Feeling so unworthy
My peace being destroyed

I repented and confessed
I have offended You
Those sins that You detest
You know they hurt me too

With pride comes disgrace
Humility brings God’s grace
I will not my God forsake
For someone’s earthly praise

The Word is full of warnings
Too serious to ignore
Lord, help me wake each morning
Today, pride I’ll abhor

I know the days I honor You
I feel that inner peace
Why would I let pride destroy
What You have given me

I need to pray that I don’t fall
An easy thing to do
The devil won’t come near me
If I’m glorifying You.

Pride can sneak up on you even when you are
doing a good deed. I always ask myself, am I
proud because I am so good at it or because it
benefits another.

Pride can keep us from admitting sin. It is like
a self made man in love with himself as his
creator.

Being proud of a job well done is different than
the pride that keeps us away from God.

Boasting about myself? Not giving God the
glory? How foolish. What do I have that I have
not received?

My goal in life is to do God’s work.
Anything else is work in vain.

To be humble brings His grace.

Psalm 10:4
The wicked, through the pride of his
countenance, will not seek after God: God is not
in any of his thoughts.
