As I was reading this weekend, several passages on pride came up in my reading time. Pride really is destructive!
In his pride the wicked man does not seek Him; in all his thoughts there is no room for God. ―Psalm 10:4
“Ultimately, the proud must persuade themselves that there is no God. One reason for this is that God’s reality is overwhelmingly intrusive in all the details of life. Pride cannot tolerate the intimate involvement of God in running even the ordinary affairs of life.” —John Piper
God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble. ―James 4:6
