The humble are care free


The humble are care free. Where there is worry, anxiety, anxiousness there is pride. The root of worry and anxiety is self-sufficiency. God gives grace to those who humble themselves and cast each and every care on him. The effect of this act is the weakening of pride and the experience of peace and joy.

Pride chief cause of misery


C.S. Lewis said pride is the chief cause of misery in every nation and family since the world began. Think of it. It was pride that took Lucifer out of heaven. It was pride that took Adam out of paradise. It was pride that took Saul, King Saul, first King of Israel, out of the kingdom. It was pride that took Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, out of Babylonian society. It was pride that took Haman out of the Persian court. It was pride that changed angels into demons. It is pride that changes friends into enemies. Pride ruins everything, and here’s why.

Pride is the cancer of the soul. And if it’s left undiagnosed and untreated, it will destroy spiritual life. So the antidote is humility. That’s the cure for this age-long disease, humility.

If there is pride in your heart it will be expressed in one of three ways. Firstly, through self-righteousness that results from feeling insecure, the need to prove yourself or a “better than” attitude. Secondly through self-reliance, having to be strong, not trusting others or knowing how to build relationships. Thirdly through self-pity, focusing on the negatives with a lack of joy, feeling unappreciated and unloved.

Pride the father of ingratitude


Henry Ward Beecher was right when he observed, “A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.” Pride is the father of ingratitude and the silent killer of gratitude.
