I turned on the radio and listened to Alistair Begg. He said, “Our whole being is full of pride and ultimately everything we do has pride hiding behind it.” When I stopped and thought about the things I do I could see how true this was. Satan, who was thrown out of heaven because of pride, comes subtlety and squeezes pride under the door in everything we do. He knows that pride is the one sin God hates most. Proverbs 6:16 tells us, “Six things doth the LORD hate; yea, seven … a proud look.” Pride is hidden so deep within us and masked so well that we overlook its ugly face. Alistair Begg also said, “We will never know, really know, the Holy Spirit unless we empty ourselves of pride and seek God’s face.”
Thought for Today: Think of all the things that you do. If pride is hidden behind them ask God to remove your pride and truly seek God’s face.
