You Must Be Lower To Be Higher (James 4:6-10, Daniel 5:1-31)

Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Wednesday service

Anyone and everyone suffers from pride. If pride is what motivates you, then you will surely fall. You should humble yourself towards others and God. There are things that God does hate, pride being one of those. In this day and age, we live in a prideful world. We call good things bad and bad things good just because we've elevated ourselves above God. "I'll do what I want to." Grace is what we need. We are already down because we lie to ourselves because we think we are something. If you are living in rebellion then you are living a prideful life. If you are one of His, saved and a living a prideful life, He WILL chastise you. He doesn't chastise you because He hates you, but He loves you.
