WE ALL CAN FALL INTO THE SIN OF PRIDE!!! Any time that you make the choice to put yourself over God, any time that you make the choice to live your life apart from God, you have fallen into the sin of pride. That is why it is important to get up in the morning and pray before starting your day. When we pray, we are saying, "God, I need you!" Keeping God in His rightful place, on the throne of our life, as the head of our life, is how we can keep from falling into the sin of pride.

Pride goes before destruction. For many people that enjoy the success of this world, there comes a point when pride overtakes their life. You become the "god" of the world that you have created or you have the financial resources to live however you want and do whatever you please. You see other people as simply there to serve you and fulfill whatever needs you may have; maybe you answer to no one. Nobody tells you what to do. Your decisions are final.

My friend, when this becomes your life, it is only a matter of time before the world you created will come crashing down. We see it happen all of the time with entertainers, business people, and sadly, even those who are in the ministry.

There is nothing wrong with having success, or having money. But we must guard ourselves from letting pride take over our life.

God must ALWAYS be first in our life and the head of our life. The very first sin was PRIDE. Satan decided that he wanted to be God. That is EXACTLY what pride is. It is when we decide that WE want to be god of our own life. When we make that choice, it is only a matter of time before we will fall.

John 15:5 that tells us "without me, you can do nothing!"

The Bible is true when it says, "pride goes before destruction."
