God has given us many stories and scriptures about pride in the Bible. As Christians we must be careful to keep our hearts focused on eternal life, and beware of how pride can direct us to the desires of the world. If we become able to control and see through the pride in our own life, some of the most important lessons of our spiritual walk will be revealed. We must remember that God knows our entire heart not just our outward appearances.
