Matter Of Pride


Pride brings a person low, but the lowly in spirit gain honor. Proverbs 29:23 NIV

God wants us to have pride in Him and our Walk. He wants us to be happy for our accomplishment, but not prideful. Pride has been the downfall of many people, including Christians.

I remember when I was 20, I received a Manager position at McDonald’s. I wasn’t prepared. It got to my head and pride took hold. I ended up dividing employees with the management. I was more into the look-at-me-I-am-a-boss-do-as-I-say-mentality. 

I look back and realize that I was young and I did not deserve it. God took me down a notch. I ended up making minimum wage as a dishwasher. Pride will make you fall. Be lowly in Spirit. Be thankful. Boast about the wonders of Jesus…….not ourselves.
