Sin of pride comes to mind after reading the first half of this chapter. I have pride and I like feeling proud when I feel there is righteous reason to, however I don’t go about boasting that I am God! I don’t even call myself “GOAT” -Greatest Of All Time (for those of you who didn’t know)
see Philippians 2:3 “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves”
and Proverbs 15:5 “The LORD detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished” and sure enough a funeral song followed from the Lord Comparing the fall of Tyres kingdom to the fall of Eden.
in the NLT v17” your heart was filled with pride because of all of your beauty your wisdom was corrupted by your love of splendour.
just like my picture shows (if you can see it) you can’t have PRIDE without a BIG “I” in the middle… Just remember it shouldn’t be you or I, the only person taking centre stage should be our Lord.
