14 Bible Verses about Pride
Pride is one of those sins that we throw under the rug. We consider homosexuality evil, murder evil, but when it comes to pride we overlook it. We have forgotten that it was the sin of pride that got Satan kicked out of Heaven. We have forgotten that God says He hates a proud heart. This is something I really struggle with. I am far from humble and day after day I have to keep on going to the Lord about this. Every day the Holy Spirit is helping me to examine what are my motives for doing even the most meaningless things.
What does the Bible say about? But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. For who sees anything different in you? What do you have that you did not receive? If then you received it, why do you boast as if you did not receive it?
Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before stumbling. When pride comes, then comes dishonor, But with the humble is wisdom. A man's pride will bring him low, But a humble spirit will obtain honor. Through insolence comes nothing but strife, But wisdom is with those who receive counsel. In the mouth of the foolish is a rod for his back, But the lips of the wise will protect them. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.
