LOVE IS NOT PROUD
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
1 Corinthians 13:4 NIV
Pride is the quality of having an excessively high opinion of oneself or one's importance. Pride has no room in love. When we walk in love we get the power to set aside every kind of pride that is caused by sinful nature inside of us.
The Bible says, "Pride precedes destruction; an arrogant spirit appears before a fall, Proverbs 16:18. If it happens you have a certain life that many people in your circle of influence don’t. There is a chance you will end up thinking that you are better than them all. People who have good education tend to think that they are smarter than everyone.
People who have money, access of good material things and better jobs tend to think that they are more intelligent that people who lack. In each one of us their is something that may make us to have a high opinion of ourselves. Some us we are proud of our facial appearances. Some we are proud of our accomplishments in life in such a way we tend to despise everyone.
This morning, I want to encourage you to ask the Lord help you live a humble life. God will elevate you and give you the access to the good things of the land if you will avoid pride in your life. If you walk in pride then destruction will come in your way. If you continue living in pride and allow arrogance in your life; you will end up falling and no one will be able to help you.
Let's love each other, and avoid any form of pride in our lives. Let's us be the good example to those who don't believe out there. We shall continue with this Series of Love according to 1 Corinthians 13 tomorrow if God wishes, God bless You!
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, help me to live a humble life in all the days of my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
