THINGS GOD HATES (1): PRIDE

Solomon gives a list of things God hates in our reading today. These are: ?A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren.? God hates a proud look. Pride is a high or inordinate opinion of one?s own dignity. It is a disposition of exalting oneself, getting above others and passing for far More than one is. Those who walk in pride will be humbled. The Bible says ?Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall? (Proverbs 16:18). Today, many are living away from Christ as a result of pride. Pride is a sin that God hates so much; it is an awful sin that we must avoid like a plague. Jesus humbled Himself even to the cross and God exalted Him. A proud heart cannot be exalted; we must be humble in all our dealings with God and others. We must not forget that anything good in us - wealth, position, honour, money - is just a privilege accorded us by God; therefore, we must not exalt ourselves above those who are less privileged. King David says, ?whoever has a haughty look and arrogant heart I (God) will not endure.? (Psalm 101.5). God acts with special favour towards those who are humble, but serves severe judgment on those who are proud. The proud person will face the fury of God?s just wrath. You cannot be proud and expect to receive divine blessings from the Lord; in short, a proud man is on his own. Humble yourself before the Lord and He will exalt you. Meditation: James 4:6. Prayer: Oh Lord, every spirit that exalts itself above You in my life, bring it to subjection. Put under Your control every spirit of self-exaltation and glorification, and let my life speak grace to others. In Jesus? name. Amen.
