SHEPHERD TO SHEEP
"Pride leads to disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom."
I picked up a magazine that the church received titled, "Unchained." It is a magazine dedicated to dealing with the bondage of sexual sin. What caught my eye was the advertisement for a book entitled, "I... The Root of Sin Exposed." I read a brief excerpt from the book, as follows:
"A man's sexual addiction is merely the symptom of a much deeper problem... a toxic mixture of pride and self-centeredness has created a 'hot house' where sin of every variety can thrive. If transformation is ever to occur, his pride and his thriving 'self-live' must be dealt a death blow."
I believe this a word to all of us about the dangerous nature of the besetting sin of pride. Whether male or female, young or old, no matter what the nature of the sin, you can be sure that pride plays a role that must be dealt with if victory is to be attained."
