It is so easy to let pride spoil our attitudes and actions. We can become self centered and let jealousy creep in when we begin to feel our success comes directly from ourselves.
Pride is one reason some people become Divas. They believe the world revolves around their important self. They steal all of the conversations to promote themselves, they complain about judges or industry individuals who didn’t rave about their work, and they cut down those who are more successful than themselves.
The truth is that pride will build into your own destruction. God doesn’t honor pride and other people important to your success are turned off by its grip on your life.
New International Version (NIV)
6 But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says:
“God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”[a]
7 Submit yourselves, then, to God.
Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
8 Come near to God and he will come near to you.
Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
9 Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom.
10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.
God loves a humble heart. He lifts up those who put Him first, others second, and ourselves last. He has given us the dreams of our heart, by humble ourselves before Him and trusting Him to bring about the best for us we have gained God’s favor.
