Hello dear one, how are you today? I want to talk to you about pride as a character and what God thinks about it. You will learn how to detect pride.

What is Pride?
Pride is a feeling of deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from achievements, qualities, of possessions that do one credit, being consciousness of one’s own dignity; it’s the quality of having an excessively high opinion of oneself. It simply is feeling like you are better than everyone else and treating them less.

Now let’s look at what God’s word says.

In a few places in the bible, God expresses his displeasure in prideful people; it is not one of the attributes of God’s children.

Take a look at what the bible says about Pride and why we as God’s children should not get involved in it.

But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” – James 4:6 (NKJV)

God resists prideful people; he doesn’t want them around him. He isn’t pleased with people who exhibit this character. But everyone who is humble, God gives grace.

Don’t you want the grace of God? If you do, then being proud isn’t an option for you.

The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate. – Proverbs 8:13 (KJV)

Being prideful is regarded as an evil thing. It’s an attribute of someone who doesn’t fear God. As a child of God you ought to fear God and so you can’t afford to have pride.

When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom. – Proverbs 11:2 (NIV)

Disgrace comes with having pride; it’s not God’s desire for his children to be disgraced. Pride is never the will of God for us as his children.

May God grant us more understanding. Amen.

I reject the spirit of pride in Jesus name Amen.

Action point:
Deliberately refuse to be proud.

I am not proud.
