Pride is a spiritual cancer.
Unfortunately it masks itself so well that we often convince ourselves that pride is normal. Maybe you learned pride from your parents, or maybe you learned it at school, maybe your not even aware of it, but after this article you will be.
It’s time to investigate the hold that it has over your life and your spirit. It’s time to get real with yourself. Which can be very scary especially if you’ve been avoiding yourself you’re entire life. (I resemble this)
Did you know that pride was one of the 7 deadly sins?
“It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels”
Pride is an excessive belief in one’s own abilities that interferes with the individual’s recognition of the grace of God.
I know there have been times in my life when I let pride get in the way of what my heart truly wanted. However, I’ve worked really, really hard on trying to come from a place of love instead of a place of ego!
If you want to change your life you have to change yourself. You must take an honest appraisal of who you are on the inside. Ask your closest friends what you need to work on, they will be honest and loving instead of judgemental. They see you though graceful eyes, and only want the best for you.
Remember friends, God already knows all of your flaws, and all of your secrets.
He gives us free will because he wants us to choose him instead of choosing ourselves.
There are many things that you can do to help rid yourself of pride. The first one is just recognizing it and learning to let it go.
You will be richly rewarded one day for all the work you do while your here on earth. I hope that you have the courage to look inside and be real with you, because your so worth it.
