The War on Pride

By Travis W Keiler
A warning against pride… proverbs 16:18 pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall… pride is a hard thing for those with addictions to overcome in recovery. No one can hit bottom till they stop digging the hole they have made for themselves. At the bottom of the hole they feel the emptiness. That’s when pride lets go of the hold it had on them. Remembering that pride is a sin that has destroyed so many people over the course of human history. Giving control of your life to God and his will, we can overcome it. The word of God has warned us of pride in Jeremiah 13:15-16 when he said “listen and pay attention! Do not be arrogant, for the lord has spoken. Give glory to the lord your God before it’s too late. Acknowledge him before he brings darkness upon you, causing you to stumble and fall on the darkening mountains. For then, when you look for the  light, you will find only terrible darkness and gloom”. But there is a way, “for you were once darkness, but now you are light in the lord. Live as children of the light” (Ephesians 5:8)! God is willing to pardon sinners! 2 John 1:3 “Grace, mercy, and peace, which come from God the father and from Jesus Christ- the son of the father- will continue to be with us who live in truth and love”… my prayer this morning is that all you men feel the peace from the father and continue to live in truth and love!… glory to God alone TWK237 🦉
