Be Careful

What is it that drives us on so relentlessly? 

Are you ready? Take a deep breath and allow 

Yourself to tolerate the one-word answer: 

PRIDE. We work and push and strive so we 

Can prove we are worthy…we are the best… 

We deserve top honors. And the hidden message: 

I can gain righteousness all on my own effort, 

Ingenuity and energy.  And because I can, 

I must! And why is this heretical? Because 

 Ultimately this philosophy says: I really don’t 

need divine righteousness.  Be Careful! 

Pride always comes before a fall. 


Read: Proverbs 16:18-19
