AUGUST 28 – PRIDE

8/28 Colossians 2:18
Don’t let anyone condemn you by insisting on self-denial. And don’t let anyone say you must worship angels, even though they say they have had visions about this. These people claim to be so humble, but their sinful minds have made them proud.
PRIDE
Pride says I can do this. Pride ignores the future and blocks out the past. Pride declares, “I am the captain of my fate.” We do not have the ability to control our world. The world deals us harsh rewards for living. In Christ we become a part of the family of God. We are part of His work in the world. Our future belongs to God. Our past is cleansed by the work Jesus did on the cross. We are free in Christ and He equips us to face the uncertainty of the world.
