Well said Pastor Jack.

Same with any relationship, from business to marriage. I fight pride daily. It is so hard to put into practice, sacrificial living. It sounds good on paper but it is the hardest thing for me to do. After all, didn’t God make me to bless me?? Uh, NO! He made me to bless Him. What an alien concept for the old man to deal with.

Thank you for the helpful reminder, to seek God’s Grace through prayer to lay “self” on His altar. God help us!

Thanks Doc. I certainly need His strength in overcoming my own pride, no doubt. Yes, it sounds good but oh so hard to do as I can see even Paul’s mighty struggle (Rom 7). Irony of ironies, just today I got a message from a pastor who’s church split right in half this weekend and he sent me a message the division (& I quote) “has split many families including mine. It is unbelievable. I am serving as Interim Pastor at the remaining church. The community split is devastating. The situation is vile. I see signs of demonic activity in my home. PLEASE PRAY.”

How tragic that this is happening more and more everyday. Thanks Doc for the encouragement my brother.

Thanks for this Jack, You are spot on. We have seen churches split — all because of pride. We have shaken off the dust from our feet and moved on, all due to pride. “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.” (Prov 16:18) —
Even the fall of a church.

Well said brother.

Thank you Pam for the encouragement my friend. It grieves us but can we imagine what it does to Christ, Who is the Head of the Church? I agree about pride. Thank you.
