Read this and be warned, Mark:
“Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall” (18).
I knew that then. I know that now.
So why is pride still such a temptation?!
Knowing isn’t enough.
I need the Lord to continually renew a right spirit within me.
And I need to purposefully do those things which put pride and self to death.
“Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud” (19).
from Proverbs 16:16
