Don’t Let Pride Bring You Down

It caused Lucifer to be kicked out of heaven.
It keeps people from asking for help.
It won’t allow people to admit they made a mistake.
Proverbs 16:18 reads, “Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall.”
Think about those words…”Pride goes before destruction.” Pride can cost a marriage breakup. Pride could cost us a job. It could keep us from learning something.
In the movie, “Remember The Titans,” at halftime, Coach Yost daughter stops him before he goes into the locker room and encourages him to get help. Yost walks in the locker room and admits he needs help on defense and asks the black coach, Herman Boone (Denzel Washington) to help him.
Do you need to admit you need help? Do you need to admit you did something wrong?
Don’t let pride be your downfall.
Admit you need help today. Admit you have a problem. Humble yourself before the Lord, and Jesus will help you.
Jesus said, “Blessed are the poor in spirit” (Matt. 5:3).
