“The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee … Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the Lord.”
The prideful will fall. This is one of the oldest principles in the Bible. It is a failure to recognize God as the Giver of our gifts. Instead, the prideful think backwards. They think themselves self-made … some to the point of expecting to be worshipped and adored for what they can do. They will even brag about it.
Always remember, it was pride that contributed to the fall of man way back in Genesis (3:6) and many people have been falling over it ever since (1 John 2:16).
Pride is deadly and deceptive. Don’t fall for it.
