Pride, A word study - West Coast Walter

Pride

What is pride?  Well, according to the dictionary pride is: “a feeling or deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one's own achievements, the achievements of those with whom one is closely associated, or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired

What does the Bible says about Pride?

These six things the LORD hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: 
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.
Proverbs 6:16-19

Everyone proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD; Though they join forces, none will go unpunished.
Proverbs 16:5

A proud and haughty man—"Scoffer" is his name; He acts with arrogant pride.
Proverbs 21:24

There are many other passages in the Bible that talk about Pride.

Pride is thinking that you’ve got it made, that you can handle anything that comes your way.  You don’t need anyone’s help and you are ALWAYS right!!  Pride is putting yourself above all else.  Pride is having the best car, the best job, the best family, etc.  A proud person is self-centered and thinks they deserve what is good.  Prideful people tend to be complainers and don’t like it when their schedules or rights aren’t being met.

God has called us to lay down our pride, to become humble.  

What is the definition of humility?  According to the dictionary humility is: “a modest or low view of one's own importance; humbleness.” 

Humility is the exact opposite of pride.  Humility is what Jesus was.  A humble person puts others first.  A humble person has compassion on others.  Humility is an attitude of being gentle, considerate, kind, and gracious, putting others in front of self. The process of humility begins when you realize that everything is not about you.


If we look at Jesus’ life all throughout the first 4 books of the New Testament, He was the ultimate example of how we are to be each and every day of our lives.  We must be focused on others around us and not focused on ourselves.  We must lay down what we want and desire and meet the needs of others.  We must pick up our cross and follow HIM!!  We are to mirror Jesus’ life, His actions and His example.  It’s not about us, it’s about HIM!!
