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.
