Pride is Eternally Unhealthy
Galatians 6:3 (KJB) For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.
Pride at work in the heart displays an attitude of “I am important and everything revolves around me.”
A prideful heart condition stands in stark contrast to a humble and submissive person having a godly heart condition. A godly heart revolves around God. Everything is about bringing honor and glory to Him and entertains no thought of self-worth.
Satan fell from heaven to earth because he pridefully vaulted himself above God. He esteemed himself to be more important than God. Satan deceived himself into thinking he was something when he was nothing. Satan still deceives people today with this kind of thinking.
Satan’s air of self-importance did not fool God. God knew that the world did not revolve around him.
Many today share this cavalier attitude and believe they exist in this world to their own end having this fatal deception at work in their heart. It is nothing more than man applying a spiritual death sentence to himself for those with a prideful heart will be subject to the wrath of God forever.
