Haughty eyes and a proud heart, the lamp of the wicked, are sin.
We are going to flip in our Bibles and look at a couple of other passages this morning. If you don't normally open your Bible for our study, please considering doing so now. Today's verse can be referred back to Proverbs 6:16-17. What does this passage say about these things?
That passage should be enough to scare us away from being prideful; yet I know that we have spoken about pride many times in our Proverbs journey. Today lets do something different. Let's visit some examples of pride in the New Testament. Do you notice a pattern in the passages below?
These men were with Jesus basically for 24/7 for three years straight...yet they still had an issue with pride.
Pride caused the first sin...and for many it is the last; because many die refusing to surrender their life to Christ.
I would like to close today with Philippians 2:5-11--Let this passage guide you in your closing prayer for today.
