We must be very careful of the spirit of pride, that spirit comes in many forms that leads to idolatry. Being proud of yourself, your family, culture, religion, country, material possessions, and your body, can lead to idolatry. Pride is a very dangerous spirit. Being proud is not bad, but when you take it to the next level that’s when selfish, boastful, bragging, self- glorification and feeling superior enters a person and that’s where idolatry is committed. Be very careful and check the posture of your heart. Check your motives and intentions of your heart every time. Don’t let pride get into your heart. Humble yourself in everything you do and always keep your heart in good shape with pure motives. Pray and ask God to remove pride out of your heart if you are struggling with the spirit of pride.
Proverbs 11:2 (NKJV)
When pride comes, then comes shame; But with the humble is wisdom.
Proverbs 29:23 (NKJV)
A man’s pride will bring him low, But the humble in spirit will retain honor.
1 John 2:16 (NKJV)
For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.
James 4: 6 (NKJV)
But He gives more grace. Therefore He says:“God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”
hope you have a great day!
