Proverbs 16:5 Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord; be assured, he will not go unpunished. (ESV)
James 4:6 But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, "God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble." (ESV)
Lord, I realize pride is one of the biggest struggles in my life. Most sins are born out of this one; selfishness, impatience, discontentment, jealousy, and anger. Help me to think less of myself, my desires, and my ways. Help me to lay down my pride before I get to the point of destruction. Give me a humble spirit seasoned with Your grace. In Jesus' name, Amen.
