That Thing Called Pride…

How dare they? Me? Me? Do you they not know who I am?

Those are the immediate thoughts that run through the most righteous mind when wronged. Depending on the atrocity of the other, a plan for revenge begins to build. They did this to me? Ok I will show them.

“How dare he return me like a cheap bag of potatoes? Me? Any you want me to overlook that? You tell me to thank God I dodged a bullet? Thank Him for what? A broken heart, a wounded pride? A disgraced family? Well, I have nothing to be thankful for.”~ Itohan

Those are the words of the heroine, Itohan Adolo, in To Live Again. In the heat of the moment she bares her soul in a heart wrenching rant. Is she able to control the actions that follow or will she be plunged into a web revenge so tangled that she asks the question…was it worth it?

Pride deceives and is rooted in the arrogance to believe that we have control over our future. Thereby elevating us to a god-like status.

Here are some ways we can overcome prideful thoughts that can often lead us to trouble if it festers.

  1. Repent & turn the opposite direction

2. Meditate on the word of God and trust in His Sovereignty.

3. Sit in the lowly seat & learn the benefits of humility.

Find out what happens to Itohan & her prideful quest for revenge. Will she heed the advice of others or get to the place of no return.
