I heard my pastor preach that pride (and I will throw in the word arrogance too) are like bad breath. Everyone knows you have it except you. I have my moments too and have to remind myself that my poop stinks like everyone else’s. God values everyone the same. We all have a judgment system in our thoughts. That’s how we make decisions. That’s how we navigate through life. How we judge a person’s value is the issue. We are all made in God’s likeness, so when we to arrogantly look down on someone because we are smarter, richer, stronger, or better-off is to put ourselves on a slippery slope. My approach is to humble myself because that is way better than being humiliated.
Thanks for taking the time to read. If you have a Sunday thought that should be an everyday thought chime in in the comments.
