Pride

From Blog11


Pride is such a deadly snare,
Satan's own belovéd sin.
It can strip your spirit bare;
Leave you dark and dead within.

Are you proud of all you've done,
Your accomplishments, your ways?
All your good came from God's Son.
Your own works are smoke and haze.

Flee from pride. Yes, run--don't walk.
Ask the Lord to give you grace
To accept the lowest place
While your peers get praiseful talk.


Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
--1 Peter 5:5 ESV

Sure goes contrary to the philosophy that "without pride you're nothing" doesn't it? Satan has sold the world a pig in the poke and they're not going to be very happy when they open it.
