Identifying & Deflating Pride

The problem with the world is . . . Pride.The human problem is Pride. Sin, all sin, your sin, my sin, the sin of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, arises in one way or another from pride.

We cannot fix the pride of another person. Pride is personal. We need to go to God's cupboard, pull out the Word of God and eat the humble pie ourselves. We need to see ourselves as God sees us and the only way for that to happen is to have our minds changed through the renewing power of the Holy Spirit. We need to submit and seek Jesus more than all our natural heart desires and all this world supposedly offers us.
