Avoiding The Fall
by Pam Ford Davis  
7/30/2009 / Devotionals


We have conflicting attitudes about pride. From early childhood we were taught to take pride in our work, our family, school, community, home state, and our nation. Each deserves our respect and commitment. The pride we need to avoid is arrogance, an opinion that in some way we are superior to others and self sufficient. There is really no such person as a "self made man!"


First, we must acknowledge that all life is a result of God's creation. Along the way family, friends and circumstances each play a part in what we become. King Uzziah of Judah is a prime example. "But when he was strong his heart was lifted up, to his destruction, for he transgressed against the Lord his God by entering the temple of the Lord to burn incense on the altar of incense. So Azzariah the priest went in after him, and with him were eighty priests of the Lord-valiant men. And they withstood King Uzziah, and said to him, It is not for you, Uzziah, to burn incense to the Lord, but for the priests, the sons of Aaron, who are consecrated to burn incense. Get out of the sanctuary, for you have trespassed! You shall have no honor from the Lord God (2 Chronicles 26:16-18 NKJ)." The Kings prideful heart led to his destruction! Pride trips us up; and we fall down defeated! "Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall (Proverbs 16:18 NKJ)." Will you avoid the fall?
