As we all know, God hates sin. But, one sin that seems to really break the heart of God is pride. When we become about ourselves, focus on our wants, or revel in our accomplishments, we just might be dancing on the edge of pride.
If you are a leader in a church, a Christian business, or a non-profit, beware of the enticement to trust in your own abilities and creativity. Even when God has greatly gifted a man or woman, these gifts are still exactly that…a gift. Thank God when things go well. Remember how He has led and blessed you. Thank Him and trust in His wisdom. Turn to His Word and seek wise Christian counsel often.
Are things going really well? Thank God and keep your eyes open for signs of pride in your heart or attitudes. Stay on your toes!
