There is a lot to learn about our lives in the Bible. We are all dealing with our pride. These Bible verses teaches us about pride.
Pride leads to destruction, and arrogance to downfall. (Proverbs 16:18)
Your pride has deceived you. Your capital is a fortress of solid rock; your home is high in the mountains, and so you say to yourself, ‘Who can ever pull me down?’ (Obadiah 1:3)
But the grace that God gives is even stronger. As the scripture says, “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. So then, submit yourselves to God. Resist the Devil, and he will run away from you. Come near to God, and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners! Purify your hearts, you hypocrites!” (James 4:6-8)
The end of something is better than its beginning. Patience is better than pride. (Ecclesiastes 7:8)
But if people are bound in chains,
suffering for what they have done,
God shows them their sins and their pride.
He makes them listen to his warning
to turn away from evil.
If they obey God and serve him,
they live out their lives in peace and prosperity.
Remember that there will be difficult times in the last days. People will be selfish, greedy, boastful, and conceited; they will be insulting, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, and irreligious; they will be unkind, merciless, slanderers, violent, and fierce; they will hate the good; they will be treacherous, reckless, and swollen with pride; they will love pleasure rather than God; they will hold to the outward form of our religion, but reject its real power. Keep away from such people. (2 Timothy 3:1-5)
The wicked are proud of their evil desires;
the greedy curse and reject the Lord.
The wicked do not care about the Lord;
in their pride they think that God doesn’t matter.
And he went on to say, “It is what comes out of you that makes you unclean. For from the inside, from your heart, come the evil ideas which lead you to do immoral things, to rob, kill, commit adultery, be greedy, and do all sorts of evil things; deceit, indecency, jealousy, slander, pride, and folly— all these evil things come from inside you and make you unclean.” (Mark 7:20-23)
A day is coming when human pride will be ended and human arrogance destroyed. Then the LORD alone will be exalted. (Isaiah 2:11)
Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. (James 4:10)
