One way the Bible assures us of a man’s destruction is through pride.
Have you ever met someone so conceited and condescending and impressed with their self-importance?
That’s exactly what we look like to God when we place our selfish desires above His will or seek affirmation from people and things of the world instead of from Him.
Humble yourself before the Lord and He will exalt you.
“Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.”
Proverbs 16:18 NKJV
“God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.””
James 4:6 NKJV
