ABOMINATION (Part 2 of 8 )

Proverbs 6:16-17(a) These six [things] doth the LORD hate: yea, seven [are] an abomination unto him: A proud look

Random Notes: 

  • Michael Jordan is the best basketball player to have ever graced the court.   No one could argue with this.  But what sets Michael apart from the rest is his humility. 
  • When traveling overseas, many people characterized Americans as “arrogant”
  • In a country of endless bounty and limitless blessing many of us have not been humbled by it, but feel entitled to it.
  • Self-esteem, assertiveness, my rights, me, mine–no wonder we have problems with pride and fail: Philippians 2:3 (b)…but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
  • Proud to be American, Southern Pride, Black Pride, Gay Pride,  Proud to be humble, pride, pride, pride.

James 4:6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
