Pride

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭29:23‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Pride

In many ways, our culture has become very self-centered to the point of feeling proud of our own self-worth. Why do we praise pride? I believe it takes our focus off God who deserves all our focus and praise. We can feel joy for doing our best, but I believe pride merely tries to conceal something which we do not want others to discover—ultimately our own powerlessness without the power of God.

Moral Compass

‭‭Job‬ ‭29:3‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Without a moral compass, we all stray farther from being our best selves. Just as a light guides us in the dark, this moral compass keeps us going in the right direction, even though we may occasionally drift off track. God is my compass, my light that keeps me humble and on the right pathway. I am so thankful that I don’t have to do it alone.
