Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. (Philippians 2:3, NIV)
Pride focuses thought, energy, and attention on me –
helpless creature –
rather than on our
Pride steals glory and praise from God.
It distracts those He would draw to himself.
Pride is a lie.
It cloaks me in
rather than in
Pride focuses inward rather than
It makes my world smaller.
Merciful Jesus, save me from the foolishness of pride.
Father, since You are who You are and
I am who I am,
help me to starve my gluttonous ego,
not feed it.
Hymn: I Fix My Thoughts on You
