I have a problem with pride. We all have a problem with it, even Christians. We must never stop battling it. It is easy to recognize it in others. We are more than willing to do that but do we recognize it in ourselves and see the damage it does? Do we see how repulsive it is in others? Do we see how repulsive it is in ourselves? Do we see how it drives people away from us? Do you know people that have fallen from high positions? You can be certain there was pride involved.
Proverbs 16:18: Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
1 Timothy 3:1-6: This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. 2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; 3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; 4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; 5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) 6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
