Put Off Pride; Put On Humility

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.
