The Essential Vice
Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: The Bible has a lot to say about the danger of pride. Why do you think pride is so bad?
Man: It’s good to feel proud of yourself. I don’t see why you would want to be worried about that.
Woman: It’s just a person who is really focused on themselves. They don’t care what other people think.
Nancy: Here’s what C.S. Lewis had to say about pride.
C.S. Lewis: The essential vice, the utmost evil is pride. Unchastity, greed, drunkenness are mere flea bites in comparison. Pride leads to every other vice. It is the complete anti-God state of mind.
Nancy: Pride is the number one roadblock to revival. It blinds us to our true spiritual condition. Psalm 10:4 says, “In the pride of his face the wicked does not seek him.”
Would you take some time today and examine your heart? Ask God to show you any areas of pride that may be keeping you from seeking Him.
