PRIDE IS THE ROOT OF ALL SIN
DULLS THE MIND
Pride perverts pure thinking.
When pride rules, it dulls the sharpest of minds – and renders them irrelevant in the real world.
Listen to a proud person as they attempt to be impressive.
DULLS THE SPIRIT
When we allow pride to rule in our spirit it rejects the rule and reign of Christ.
The word of the Lord that we harbour in our spirit is the foundation upon which our life is built.
To disobey God’s laws is to dethrone the Christ from His place of Lordship in our lives.
DULLS THE CONSCIENCE
The more often we cover our sin because of pride, the more we yield to our new flawed reality – and the duller our conscience becomes to the still small voice.
Pride believes you are still as cool and accepted as always.
Sadly your perception has been dulled to the new self reality created by pride.
Pride is always in a hurry.
That is why pride leads to a fall.
In your haste to satisfy yourself – you can’t wait – and so bad decisions are made.
Pride always believes it is innocent, and always blames the other person.
Pride fights for its rights – whilst knowing it is wrong.
Refusing to take responsibility means pride can never repent.
The Bible is clear – you must humble yourself.
IF WE HUMBLE OURSELVES;
HE IS FAITHFUL AND JUST TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS AND CLEANSE US FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.
