God’s Warnings: Beware of Pride

Past Sunday Key Verse:
"Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall." (Proverbs 16:18 NIV)

Pride is unreasonable and inordinate self-esteem, an excessive love of self, and a desire to be more important or prestigious than others.

During the next week, discuss prideful behavior as you or your child encounter it. Prideful behavior won’t be hard to find; sporting events, school, work, television, newspapers and magazines are filled with people acting prideful. Ask how the people in these prideful situations could have acted humbly instead.

Dear Lord, teach me to be humble in all my ways. Instead of seeking attention and glory for myself, help me use my life to glorify You. If I boast, let me boast in You Lord God. In Jesus name, Amen.
