Pride And The Road To Ruin.


Pride is part of human nature, is a very dangerous sin, and has practically wrecked the human race.

Proverbs 16:18 (NKJV) says Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.”

5 WAYS PRIDE DEVASTATES LIFE

1. PRIDE DEFIES GOD.

Proverbs 6:16-19 (NKJV) says These six things the Lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren.”

Proverbs 16:5 (NKJV) says Everyone proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord; Though they join forces, none will go unpunished.”

1 Peter 5:5 (NKJV) says Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for 'God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.'”

2. PRIDE DEFILES MAN.

Proverbs 16:5 (NKJV) says Everyone proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord; Though they join forces, none will go unpunished.”

Proverbs 21:4 (NKJV) says A haughty look, a proud heart, And the plowing of the wicked are sin.”

Mark 7:21-22 (NKJV) says For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness.”

3. PRIDE DIVIDES SOCIETY.

Proverbs 13:10 (NKJV) says By pride comes nothing but strife, But with the well-advised is wisdom.”

Proverbs 28:25 (NKJV) says He who is of a proud heart stirs up strife, But he who trusts in the Lord will be prospered.”

4. PRIDE DISHONORS LIFE.

Proverbs 11:2 (NKJV) says When pride comes, then comes shame; But with the humble is wisdom.”

Proverbs 15:33 (NKJV) says The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom, And before honor is humility.”

Proverbs 18:12 (NKJV) says Before destruction the heart of a man is haughty, And before honor is humility.”

Proverbs 29:23 (NKJV) says A man’s pride will bring him low, But the humble in spirit will retain honor.”

5. PRIDE DESTROYS SOULS.

Proverbs 15:25 (NKJV) says The Lord will destroy the house of the proud, But He will establish the boundary of the widow.”

Proverbs 16:18-19 (NKJV) says Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, Than to divide the spoil with the proud.”

Proverbs 18:12 (NKJV) says Before destruction the heart of a man is haughty, And before honor is humility.”

STAY OFF THE ROAD TO RUIN.

Make no mistake about it. Pride is the great sin. It is the devil's most effective and destructive tool.

Pride can lead you down the road to financial, emotional, spiritual, and eternal ruin and is rapidly filling Hell. Get right with God, humble yourself, and never allow yourself to get too big for God to use.
