There are events in our lives that make us "swell with pride." We may take pride in something we do or in something done by someone close to us. A little pride is not bad, as long as we maintain perspective and humility!
When we have too much pride, we are setting ourselves up for disgrace. We cannot forget that we are human, that we are imperfect. We need to remember that our successes need to be attributed to the source of our strength - our faith in God and redemption through Jesus Christ! If we try to take the credit and pride in ourselves, we are setting ourselves up for failure. However, if we are humble and give credit to God, we can be sure of future blessings!
Be humble and give credit to God - the source of your blessings!
Thank You for blessing me and being in my life. Help me to remain humble and to give You the credit for successes and wisdom. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
