“Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.” Proverbs 16:18, ESV
I am one of the most prideful people I know. I approach every situation as if I have something invaluable to offer, even when it comes to my relationship with Christ. So often when I pray I offer my own strengths to God as if they are my own. I live my life as if without him I am perfectly capable of doing nearly anything. I compartmentalize my spiritual life to fifteen minutes a day, then continue to carry on like God should not permeate every aspect of my life.
