Oh pride…the downward path for us all

For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.
Romans 12:3 ESV

I woke up to this verse on my phone. One good thing about a daily verse wigget on your home screen. *eye roll*

Then I started to think…do I have a pride problem? Is God telling me to humble myself down a couple (many) notches.

So transperency shall commence…..

There is some truth in that verse and why God brought it up to my attention.  I have fallen into the pit of prideful thoughts. I pride myself in many ways. I have pride of my education. I have pride about my husband and all that he does and can do. I have pride everytime I set foot in my hometown. I have pride of being able to spend time in the Caribbean. 

And I have lost friends from it. I was prideful during my last trip to michigan. So much so that when I was visiting an old friend I was dripping in boasting about my life. Now she won’t return my texts ever since……

The hardest part of pride, is that it’s not obvious when it attacks. It seeps into your mind undetected until it has consumed your life.
