Pride insinuates itself everywhere if you don’t watch out. Do you defend your prideful ways to all and sundry? Crave attention for every little bit you do for anybody? Pray long-winded boastful prayers to get attention?
Note what Jesus says in Mark 12:38-40, MSG
He continued teaching. “Watch out for the religion scholars. They love to walk around in academic gowns, preening in the radiance of public flattery, basking in prominent positions, sitting at the head table at every church function.
And all the time they are exploiting the weak and helpless. The longer their prayers, the worse they get. But they’ll pay for it in the end.”
Prayer- Lord we humble our prideful selves before you today in grateful thanks for the lessons we have learned. Amen.
