Diagnosing Pride

“Pride is the only disease in the world that makes everyone sick except the person who has it.” A few questions to help recognize pride in yourself:

  • What happens in you when someone does something good?
  • What happens in you when someone does something bad?
  • What happens in you when someone encourages you?
  • What happens in you when someone corrects you?
  • What happens when someone successful walks in?
  • What happens when someone unsuccessful walks in?
  • What happens in you when you do something good?
  • What happens in you when you do something bad?

Pride has to be on top, so it often sees other people’s successes, failures, words, & actions as opportunities for ill will, gossip, jealousy, resentment, or worse.

“As a face is reflected in water, so the heart reflects the real person” Proverbs 27:19 NLT.

Learn to listen to your heart to diagnose pride & other sinful attitudes.
