Is it important to you that you impress people and avoid embarrassment? If so, your pride may be in the way of what’s best for you. Check out this intense fighter jet story about a near crash and burn.
“The human heart is deceitful above all things and it is extremely sick; Who can understand it fully and know its secret motives?.” Jeremiah 17:9, AMP
“Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.” Proverbs 16:18, ESV
“Fools think their own way is right, but the wise listen to others.” Proverbs 12: 15, NLT
The most dangerous thing in our life comes from the blind side…it’s invisible to us. It’s our pride, our arrogance. Pride says I’m better than others. I deserve more. I matter more. It also says, I’m above those rules. I’m an exception. I can make it on my own. Pride comes from the depths of our very tricky and self-centered hearts. We can’t see it and yet it blinds us. How much do you make things about you? How much are you into what people think of you? How many excuses and justifications do you make for yourself?
Don’t let pride cause a life crash. Get courageous and check for signs of pride. Ask a few close friends to observe your actions, words and thinking.
