PRIDE LEAVES NO ROOM FOR GRACE

Pride is the real weapon of mass destruction. The bible says that pride undeniably comes before destruction. I have been warring this formidable vice for years and I’ve learned its attacks are covert, subtle, and often goes undetected. Clives Staples Lewis said, “There is one vice of which no man in the world is free; which every one in the world loathes when he sees it in someone else; and of which hardly any people, except Christians ever imagine that they are guilty themselves….The essential vice, the utmost evil, is Pride. Unchastity, anger, greed, drunkenness, and all that, are mere fleabites in comparison: it was through Pride that the devil became the devil; Pride leads to every other vice: it is the complete anti-God state of mind… As long as you are proud you cannot know God. A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and, of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you!” I am thankful for God’s mercy and for emptying me of this deadly vice! Humility is the only way to a fruit producing life!
