PRIDE AS A DESTROYER...A CHARACTER LOATHED SO MUCH BY GOD !

Pride as a subject is not new to anyone... believer or unbeliever alike. *I am sorry I cannot say sorry* is a product of pride.
There's HEALTHY PRIDE, for example ;
And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. (Gen 1: 31)

And there's also UNHEALTHY PRIDE which constitutes almost the entire human race because of of its bitter originator,whose ONLY ASSIGNMENT IN LIFE,is to destroy God's Good Works,you and I being his main targets;

13. For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. (Isa 14: 13-14)

This is the reason for the wrath God displays when dealing with the worldly proud. He spares no mercy until HE brings them to their knees(you and I included).
We have to be very careful because of satans craftiness that makes SOME OF US THAT ARE ACTUALLY PROUD TO THINK WE ARE HUMBLE. We shouldn't toy with God's Warning;

11. The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.
12. For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low: (Isa 2: 11-12)

A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit. (Pro 29: 23)

But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. (Jas 4: 6)

We should check our lives daily for traces of unhealthy pride and deal with them. THERE'S NONE HARDLY FREE OF THIS DISEASE, BUT,IF WE ARE WILLING, GOD'S WORD WILL ALWAYS CURE IT FOR US.

Behold,some examples from the Bible.


The pride of Lucifer cost him heaven
The pride of Herod cost him his life
The pride of ‘Nezzar cost him Babylon
The pride of Moses cost him Cannan

The pride of Peter cost him courage
The pride of Judas cost him repentance
The pride of disciples cost them alertness
The pride of Israelites cost them freedom

The pride of Goliath cost his life
The pride of Jezebel cost her life
Pride of Manasseh cost his freedom
The pride of Haman destroyed him

May God's Grace and Mercy keep us humbled, Amen !
