ARE YOU PROUD? Bad pride
This is the pride that makes you always compare (or measure) yourself with others. This pride begins in the heart (Mk 7:21,22), and spreads through the person affecting his mind, his feelings and even his spiritual life. It is one of Satan's most clever ways of spoiling your life (1 Jn 2:16). It is the most deceitful of all sins. It grows in your life without you knowing it. Of the seven things that God hates, he hates pride the most (Prov 6:16). Pride lifts a man up, makes him compete ( try to do better than other). Instead of helping and sharing, it makes him selfish, hard to live with, unwilling to accept any authority, always wanting first place, the position of importance and leadership. It is this pride that wants to do all the talking and no listening. It is this pride that comes before a fall (Prov 16:18). It is this pride that we must always be fighting against. It may be your number one enemy!
