Wrestling with Pride?

Let me answer that for you. Yes. Yes, you are.

Below are some questions to help you discern the level of your own pride based on our exploration of 1 Chronicles 10 yesterday. (Hint: it’s likely much deeper than you are willing to admit. For more, check out the sermon: https://sjepc.com/sermons/the-price-of-pride/).

Are you happy for others when they get the promotion you wanted? Are you happy for others when they succeed? Are you happy for others when they are blessed? Are you grateful for what God has done for you? Or do you tend to get angry/jealous, thinking you deserve what others have?

Are you willing to do things God’s way—heart, mind, soul, and strength—not only when it’s easy but also when it’s inconvenient?

Does your life bring glory to God or does your life bring glory to the idols of this world? Does your life speak to the glory of God or your love for the idols around you?

Does your life bring joy in the Lord to others or even yourself?

Do your choices lead to life or death? That is, do your choices lead to greater intimacy with God or a greater distance from God?
