PRIDE…curb my tendency

O, God, my Father…there are so many subtle ways this sneaky sin encroaches on my life. Please give me clarity when I am tempted to slide toward pride in anything I do.

Give me a strong sense…even a not so subtle reminder when I begin leaning into pride. Give me a strong sense of humility and of who I am in relationship with You. Turn my bent toward pride into gratitude for all Your graciousness to me.

I pray Your hedge of protection around me about this today…and everyday, for the sake of Your Kingdom. Amen

Verse for Today: “Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.” (Jeremiah 9:23-24)
