Pride Gets In Our Way

We are too busy “telling people” to hear.  I often hear people tell about a sermon they’ve heard or quote a Bible verse in that preachy “people ought to know better, they gonna be sorry attitude/voice.”  I’ve even done it myself.

I heard a sermon once where the preacher said that’s the devil getting us distracted so we miss what’s really for us.

Matthew 7:5                                                                                                                                                                  “Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

But I think the biggest problem is pride.  What would happen if we got rid of that pride and came before God with a humble heart?  What if we were really thankful for all He has done for us? Our hearts would change, our lives would change, our world would change.
