DAY 331: Pride Will Kill a Man

Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.  ~ James 4:10

Pride is hard to detect in oursevles. Others can see it in us, but we have difficulty detecting it. Pride creates a false reflection in the mirror. 

Pride will kill a man. Pride creates empty, lonely shells of men who lose their way.

If your relationships are struggling to get started or they tend to fade out quickly, perhaps pride is running rampant? 

Humility is the answer. The key to biblical humilty is to allow your thoughts to come under the teaching and control of Christ.

Allow your attitude and behavior to be formed by the direction of God's spirit, not your own.  Humilty is the cure to pride - and it begins on your knees in prayer.
