Overcoming Pride & Arrogance
  • The good, the bad & the ugly!
    • The good is when pride is used to define man’s self respect and personal dignity.
      • Matthew 22:39 (NKJV)39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’
      • 1 Timothy 4:12 (NKJV)12 Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

The bad & ugly.
    • The bad and ugly is when we have an inordinate self esteem which is better described as conceit.
    • Proverbs 21:4 (NKJV)4 A haughty look, a proud heart, And the plowing of the wicked are sin.

Is it a sin?
    • It is a great sin. “Pride thrust Nebuchadnezzar out of man’s society, Saul out of his kingdom, Adam out of paradise, Haman out of court, and Lucifer out of heaven” (Thomas Adam).
    • Proverbs 6:16-19 (NKJV)16 These six things the Lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: 17 A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, 18 A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, 19 A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren.

Some examples in the Bible.
    • Uzziah-2 Chronicles 26:16 (NKJV) 16 But when he was strong his heart was lifted up, to his destruction, for he transgressed against the Lord his God by entering the temple of the Lord to burn incense on the altar of incense.
    • Haman-Esther 3:1-2 (NKJV) 1 After these things King Ahasuerus promoted Haman, the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, and advanced him and set his seat above all the princes who were with him. 2 And all the king’s servants who were within the king’s gate bowed and paid homage to Haman, for so the king had commanded concerning him. But Mordecai would not bow or pay homage.

Luke 18:10 (NKJV)10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.
  • Acts 12:22 (NKJV)22 And the people kept shouting, “The voice of a god and not of a man!”
  • Matthew 20:21 (NKJV)21 And He said to her, “What do you wish?” She said to Him, “Grant that these two sons of mine may sit, one on Your right hand and the other on the left, in Your kingdom.”
