Pride and prejudice against humility

Pride brushes aside other people’s opinions. Humility tries to understand them.

Humility is underrated. Pride is over blown.

Proud people blame other people. Humble people accept responsibility for the consequences of their words and behaviors.

Pride can get you stuck. If you’re unwilling to think outside your opinions, feelings, and desires, you’re stuck.

The Bible says that if we turn from our “wicked ways,” God will heal our land, but how can we turn from them if we don’t think we have any?

To pray isn’t just words that you say. It’s also being humble enough to hear what God says and to obey Him.

Few people define Christianity as “exhilarating,” but I do! There’s nothing like hanging out with the living Jesus! The living Jesus daily infuses me with peace, joy, purpose, and hope.

Pride produces unhappiness. Unhappiness isn’t Christian. Joy is! “I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.” -Jesus

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
