Recommended Posts

Beware of pride.

Every mortal has at least a casual if not intimate relationship with the sin of pride.

There are numerous instances in the scriptures that talk about righteous pride.

There is a difference in being proud of many things and being prideful.

What is the difference?

Pride is sinful because it breeds hatred or hostility.

Pride is a sin of comparison.

Pride is a sin of great-elevation.

Pride turns to envy.

Should we not hold ourselves to a higher standard?

We can be grateful for our health, wealth, possessions or positions, but when we become obsessed with our status that’s when pride corrupts.

How do we conquer the sin of pride?

It is almost impossible to be lifted up in pride when our hearts are filled with charity.
