Scripture for the day is Proverbs 16:5,18
5 The Lord detests all the proud of heart.
Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished.
18 Pride goes before destruction,
a haughty spirit before a fall.
After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, my pride makes me sometimes feel inferior and sometimes superior. It sometimes makes me too afraid and sometimes not cautious enough. It seems to be at the root of so many other things wrong with me. Do whatever it takes, Lord, to diminish its power in my life. Amen.
