Ups and Downs of Pride and Humility
Pride is at the root of the carnal nature of man, the rejection of the widsom of God in favour of the wisdom of man.
The Bible tells us to “clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because God opposes the proud but shows favour to the humble.” (1 Peter 5:5)
As Christians, we are called to walk in humility, yet we often find this difficult. Sometimes we can get confused as to what pride and humility truly are. Are the things that we strive towards in our personal and professional lives really for God or to satisfy our pride? Does being humble mean to be self-effacing and having a poor opinion of ourselves?
This weekend course will lead us on a journey to look at some of the roots of pride and learn what true Godly humility is, and also discover the practical outworking of this in our daily lives.
