Arrogance and Pride – A sure way to get on the wrong side of God!

Arrogance and Pride…

Arrogance and PrideThey’re not just observable actions and activities directed toward other people (sometimes no more than a person’s “body language”)… Facts are arrogance and pride begin with attitudes of privilege and superiority (we think somehow we’re better than other people)… attitudes and actions like that are spiritually dangerous – even deadly! In fact, they’re sin! … and they put us on the wrong side of God (not a good place to be)! That’s the message of 1 Peter 5:5-6:

“Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for ‘God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.’ Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you,”

God helping me, I never want to be guilty of the sins of arrogance and pride! “Search me O God and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! See if there be any wicked way in my and lead me in the way everlasting!” (Psalm 139:23-24) I want to heed the prophetic admonition of this Scripture… “Humble yourself, therefore, under the mighty hand of God!”
