PRIDE KILLS!

The sin of pride is the sin of sins. We’re warned to guard our hearts against pride lest we too “fall into the same condemnation as the devil.”(1 Timothy 3:6)


The sin of pride is a preoccupation with self. It is thus very fitting that the middle letter in the word is “i.” Pride is all about “me, myself, and I.”

C.S. Lewis said, “True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.” 


If humility is the opposite of pride why do so many fail to walk in ‘it’. Well, one of the most difficult virtues to ascertain in life is the ability to walk in absolute humility. St. Augustine listed “the three greatest virtues of Christianity: humility, humility, and humility.” 


We, as a Christian force should be humbling ourselves and teaching the current generation the importance of turning back to God, and understanding that our nation ceases to be blessed if we do not acknowledge Him. Our nation does not need the prideful boasts that “WE” will overcome, but the humbling pleas that God will forgive, be merciful, and restore His favor to this nation! (2 Chronicles 7:14)
