Pride vs Humility

Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us. Romans 12:3 NLT

A person who is proud and conceited is self-centered and limits the work of the Holy Spirit in their life. Someone who is humble surrenders their life to God. God can work with a humble heart because they are teachable. Those who think they are better and know more are not able to be taught. The humble person knows they are dependent on God’s grace for every spiritual gift.

Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall. Better to live humbly with the poor than to share plunder with the proud. Those who listen to instruction will prosper; those who trust the LORD will be joyful. Proverbs 16:18-20 NLT
