The Essential 100, Day 5
Pride. As we continue through the Essential 100 reading plan in YouVersion, we are looking at a short passage today, just 9 verses. But they are a very sad 9 verses indeed. Read Genesis 11:1-9.
As the world has continued, man has looked around and decided they are the best and deserve the best. Unfortunately, they didn’t look to God and realize that God is the best. Man, in his pride, decides to build a tower to reach the heavens. God, in his wisdom, stops him.
God knows what is best for us and when we lose sight of God in our life, we will end up allowing pride to sneak in and lie to us about so many things. When we compare ourselves to God, we see truth. When we compare ourselves to ourselves, we see pride.
Who do we have set up as the standard for our life? Do we seek God and stay reverent toward him, or are we only seeing ourselves and being distracted and lied to by pride?
