1 Corinthians 13:3 niv

Standard

boxIf we sacrifice what we have so others will think more highly of us
we are not sacrificing with love we are sacrificing with pride.
If we suffer to gain attention to ourselves our resolve is not love but pride.
Pride is an opportunist always trying to find a way into our hearts.
Only love can overcome pride’s ambition.

Have you done battle with pride?  
How do you protect your heart from pride?

Blessings this day of grace,

patricia

  1. I can say I am proud about being a Catholic and I take pride in knowing Jesus. Price use it wisely. If not, shallow, it’s not fattening. Have a blessed day.

    • There is nothing wrong with pride that expresses your happiness or joy like your pride in being Catholic and knowing Jesus. But we are to take care that we do not boast in this and make it about ourselves…that what we are proud of is something we have done and the credit is all ours. You have a humble heart and do not boast but are motivated by your love of Christ and His Church…we can learn from your example. Thank you for sharing and blessings to you. .

  2. I have found the need in my personal life and the convictions with examples from clear Scripture, that taking time to focus on my wife’s love of me humbles me. It is a mirror dimly reflecting God’s love of me, but I need that personal mirror. It is why we are called into personal relationships with other believers. It also is our witness in the world — whether we do it poorly or well — for they are supposed to see us and say: “See how much they love one another”.

    • What a wise man…your wife is blessed! We are a witness to the world and are to reflect Jesus to others with our lives. Something that I find humbling in that I so often reflect a very watery image of Him. .Blessing, Gregory.
