Pride will kill you

31 Jul

“Pride will kill you. Forever. Pride is the sin most likely to keep you from crying out for a Savior. Those who think they are well will not look for a doctor.”

So begins the opening paragraph of a thought provoking blog post by the folks at Desiring God. “Seven Subtle Symptoms of Pride” presents a summary of Jonathan Edwards thoughts on the subject. They include:

  1. Fault-finding
  2. A harsh spirit
  3. Superficiality
  4. Defensiveness
  5. Presumption before God
  6. Desperation for attention
  7. Neglecting others
