Pride/Humility

 

The last few weeks we’ve been in Daniel 4, and the sermons have all been about pride vs. humility. The Rendezvous theme was essentially about pride vs. humility, and now today’s note will summarize some of the main points of application.

 

  • Pride hinders a teachable spirit
  • Pride results in embarrassment
  • Pride blinds you to needed improvements.
  • Pride hides your obvious flaws.
  • Pride makes you think you’re bigger than you are.
  • Pride is all-concerned about how you look to others.
  • Pride is all about pleasing you.
  • Pride ignores spiritual direction and makes its own decisions.
  • Pride excuses problems. Humility owns and corrects them
  • Pride has to be seen. Humility has nothing to prove
  • Humility admits and confesses sin specifically
  • Humility recognizes other powers
  • Humility submits to God
  • Humility knows where to turn for real answers
  • Humility can accept the truth
  • Humility looks upward
  • Humility returns honor, it doesn’t remove it
  • Humility deflects praise to God
  • Sometimes humility comes through humiliation
  • Often humility results in blessings from God
  • Humility recognizes that true leadership is not self-serving but self-sacrificing and serving others
  • Humility leads to true worship – a major difference between humans and animals
