Pensées on Pride - 10-12

Psalm 94:2 Rise up, O Judge of the earth; pay back to the proud what they deserve.
  • Lord, I can't sing this because it is me. Lord, thank you for your mercy in not giving me what I deserve.
Psalm 138:6 Though the LORD is on high, he looks upon the lowly, but the proud he knows from afar.
  • Why is it I feel God is distant? Why is it that he seems afar off? Here is the answer.
Proverbs 18:12 Before his downfall a man's heart is proud, but humility comes before honour.
  • We get it the wrong way round - we are proud because we think we deserve honour. God gives honour to those who are not proud.
  • Lord, help us to keep ourselves in a proper perspective, without keeping an eye to the promise of honour.
