Max Lucado – God Hates Pride

 

Listen to Today’s Devotion

“Do you see a person wise in their own eyes?  There is more hope for a fool than for them” (Proverbs 26:12). God hates pride. How do we explain God’s abhorrence of the haughty heart?  Simple. God resists the proud because the proud resist God. Arrogance will not admit to sin.  The heart of pride never confesses, never repents, never asks for forgiveness.  Pride is the hidden reef that shipwrecks the soul.

Pride comes at a high price. Don’t pay it. Choose instead to stand on the offer of grace. “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble” (1 Peter 5:5). Isn’t it easy to see why?  Humility is happy to do what pride will not. The humble heart is quick to acknowledge the need for God, eager to confess sin, willing to kneel before heaven’s mighty hand. And because God’s promises are unbreakable, our hope is unshakable!
