Pride comes before the fall

proverbs 165

Day 5

God is steadfast and very patient with us all. He is always waiting on us to admit we are sinners who need a savior, for those who are lost and wandering. It is easy to get a prideful spirit even as a born again Christian. There is good news for us though! When pride whelps up inside of us,  we can always go to the Father and ask for his forgiveness and he will forgive us. We must not think we are too good for reproach, or punishment. We reap what we sow. So if we reap a harvest of pride, we will be sure to sow a fall.

We should not think we are too good to get our little spiritual behinds spanked! The Lord, like an earthly father will discipline his children as he sees fit. He has every right too as well.
