Pride shows itself in many ways


Proverbs 29:23, “A mans pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.”

It is healthy to have a good self-image, but an exaggerated opinion of ourselves will eventually lead to embarrassment and humiliation.

Pride shows itself in many ways. Let us take a look at the following.

Self-esteem- “for he flattereth himself in his own eyes.”

Conceit- “for if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.”

Careless hearing- “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your ownselves.”

An unbridled tongue- “If any man among you seem to be religious and bridleth not his tongue, but deceieth his own heart, this man’s religion is in vain.”

Spiritual poverty-Revelation 3:17, “Because thou sayeth, I am rich and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked.”

Humility is a strange thing. When you think you’ve gained it, you’ve lost it.
