Charlie's Encouraging Words (published July 2017)
Anybody occasionally struggle with pride?
How we answer that question may reveal a couple of things about our pride.
We might say, “No, I never struggle with pride.” But isn’t that a pretty prideful boast to make?
Maybe we answer, “Yes, I’m consumed by pride and want everyone to know how much I suffer.”
That’s kind of a prideful statement too, if we think about it.
The thing about pride is it can trip us up “coming or going.”
This Sunday we’re going to unpack some verses in the Bible that can help us spiritually deal with pride no matter when and how we struggle with it.
The title of my talk is “Getting Off the Pride Ride.”
