Pride & Gastric
Topic: Pride Scripture: Acts 12:20–12:24
Why is pride so bad? Scripture is clear that God hates pride, it is the source of all sin, and it always destroys. Pride puts us in opposition to God and in the end it will destroy us. We must daily practice humility to fight the sin of pride that can easily entrap all of us. Practicing humility helps accomplish three things: humility orientate us towards Jesus, not others; humility gives glory and not attention; and humility focuses on self-awareness, not self-image.
