Pride

I was asked in a book I am reading How does pride manifest itself? How does God veiw it? What are the consequences of having a proud heart? I did my research in the Bible and found out:

  • The wicked in his proud countenance does not seek God; God is in none of his thoughts. -Psalm 10:4

  • Oh, love the LORD, all you His saints! For the LORD preserves the faithful, And fully repays the proud person. -Psalm 31:23

  • The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverse mouth I hate. -Proverbs 8:13

  • When pride comes, then comes shame; But with the humble is wisdom. -Proverbs 11:2

  • Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18

  • A man’s pride will bring him low, But the humble in spirit will retain honor. Proverbs 29:23

  • The pride of your heart has deceived you, You who dwell in the clefts of the rock, Whose habitation is high; Youwho say in your heart, ‘Who will bring me down to the ground? -Obadiah 1:3

  • And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted. -Matthew 23:12

  • But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “ God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble." -James 4:6


  • The proud heart is the thing that blinds us about our true spirtual condition, we start to think higly of ourselves. It is pride that will distance us from God.
