God doesn’t hate PRIDE. But I’d watch out for stray lightning bolts if I were you, Franklin.
Someone’s bank account must be getting low.
Did you know that God hates pride? We read a lot about June being designated Pride Month, but I think Princeton professor Robert P. George has a great idea. Let’s focus on Biblical humility rather than pride this June.
Pride involves the sin of rejecting God’s authority and rules, in favor of our own wants and desires. In contrast, humility involves surrendering ourselves to God and honoring Him. Jesus is the ultimate example of humility.
Although He is the King of kings and Creator of heaven and earth, He humbled Himself by taking on the penalty of our sins and dying on a criminal’s cross in our place.
It is ludicrous and arrogant to think that we can tell the One who made us male and female that we somehow know better. I’m with Professor George—let’s celebrate humility and fidelity, not the opposite. What do you think?Posted to Franklin Graham’s Facebook page:
