Ditching Pride

Ditching Pride

 Read the Word:  “Behold, I will make you small among the nations; you are greatly despised. The arrogance of your heart has deceived you, You who live in the clefts of the rock, in the loftiness of your dwelling place, who say in your heart, ‘Who will bring me down to earth?” (Obadiah 2-3). 

 Apply the Word: Goodness gracious! Pride is such a bad thing, and it can lead to a world of damage. This was a lesson that Edom had to learn the hard way. What can we learn from their sin of pride? We know that one can be great and impressive to humans and greatly despised by God due to pride.  Let’s humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God and let him be the one to exalt us. It’s good to have a “pride checkup” every once in a while.  Ask the Lord to give you that checkup and should you be filled with pride, take the potent medicine of the Word for the remedy.  Let’s be like our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Who was humble and meek.
