Pride takes many forms, and the Lord finds most of them distasteful. We elevate ourselves at our own peril. We think too highly of ourselves to our own demise. When we raise ourselves up before God or above others, God will engineer circumstances that will remind us of our proper place. He will bring us low. If He wants us raised up, He will delight in doing so Himself-and He can do it much better than we can. How is pride manifested in your life?
