Beware Of Pride!

Beware Of Pride!

Pr 16:18 NKJV    “Pride goes before destruction.”

Think about the things we become proud over: the home we live in, the car we drive, the diploma hanging on our wall, the people we mingle with, and the position we hold. When you’ve worked hard to get to where you are, look out for pride! Paul asks, “Who makes you differ from another? And what do you have that you did not receive? Now if you did indeed receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it?” (1Co 4:7 NKJV). So what should you do? (1) Examine your belief system about who you are, what you have, and what you can do. Jesus said, “Without Me you can do nothing” (Jn 15:5 NKJV). Remind yourself: “I’m just the glove; God’s the hand that fills it.” That’ll help you to keep your perspective right! (2) Focus more on others than on yourself. The saying—“When a person is all wrapped up in themselves, they make a pretty small package”—is true. “Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others” (Php 2:4 NKJV). (3) Respect and value everyone you meet regardless of their social status, race, gender, or other distinguishing factors. When you walk in humility, people respect you and receive your input, and they don’t suspect you of having selfish motives. The Bible says: “These things the Lord hates…a proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren” (Pr 6:16-19 NKJV). Today, beware of pride.

Hi fantastic website! Does running a blog similar to this require a great deal of work?
I've absolutely no knowledge of computer programming but I was
hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyways, if you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please share.
I understand this is off topic but I simply wanted to ask. Thanks a lot!

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added"
checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.

Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
Appreciate it!
