Throughout Scripture we are told about the consequences of pride. Proverbs 16:18-19 tells us that “pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall. Better to be lowly in spirit and among the oppressed than to share plunder with the proud.”
Pride can be summarized as an attitude of self-sufficiency, self-importance, and self-exaltation in relation to God.
Pride provokes God’s displeasure, and he has committed himself to oppose it.
