Pride Deception

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today – July 21, 2019

He [Nebuchadnezzar] said, “Is not this great Babylon I have built as the royal residence, by my mighty power and for the glory of my majesty?” And those who walk in pride He is able to humble. Daniel 4:30, 37b 

Pride is deceived; it walks in deception, believing things that are untrue. It thinks it is in control and is responsible for its own accomplishments. Pride has an inflated belief in itself and a condescending attitude toward others. It is all wrapped up in its own agenda. A prideful man may even mouth the right words, but his behavior betrays him. Pride is a product of unaccountable living. Without checks and balances, pride develops a track record of deception that leads to defeat. Pride’s greatest deception is to set itself up against God. You can go through the motions of religious activity without brokenness and obedience; that is the epitome of pride.
