The Danger of Arrogance and Pride
Isaiah 2:6-22 tells us what happens if we trust man instead of God.
And the haughtiness of man shall be humbled, and the lofty pride of men shall be brought low, and the Lord alone will be brought low in that day.”Isaiah 2:17
James 4:16 calls arrogance evil. James 4:17 says
So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.James 4:17
Putting these thoughts together if you know that boasting in yourself is evil and you continue to do it, it is sin. The solution is to do all we do to glorify God. Psalms 115:1 says
Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory, for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness.Psalm 115:1
Until next time, I remain with a song in my heart. JaneEllen
