Sadly many relationships have been destroyed because someone didn’t let go of some pride or judgment they were holding.

Pride destroys opportunities, you may have something amazing in your sights, ready to grasp, but there’s something that you just can’t get from it that you feel you should. Then you may grumble because it’s not what you thought it should be.

How does God view pride?
In his pride the wicked man does not seek him; in all his thoughts there is no room for God.
Pride keeps you from knowing God is right and you are not.
Pride creeps it’s way into the mind of men, thus making them seemingly above others
The eyes of the arrogant will be humbled and human pride brought low; the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.
