While preparing for a speaking assignment I was reading "Are ye stripped of pride" and realized how little I understood about pride and how prideful I really am.

Two things that struck me:

1. How simple the war of Heaven was and the downfall of Lucifer was pride. He wanted the glory and could not accept Heavenly Father's plan. He also persuaded a third to follow him by lies.

2. We can be prideful in 2 areas in prosperity (not me..i have been blessed but would not say we are rich.) and the second in adversity (that is what I am struggling with. And pride can be toward man (which again I feel like is not my issue) or toward God that is me! I get mad and do not feel like praying and get lackadaisical in my worship because I am proud.

I never put that together before. I know! So simple but it was a big light bulb moment for me.

I now have this article saved to my phones home screen. It is that good!

Check out this article out! Kim B. Clark "Are Ye Stripped of Pride?"


I have two good examples in my life, everyday, who are the least prideful individuals. And I can be better at recognizing those moments when the great lie creaps up. I am grateful for moments when I see myself clearly and for people who love me anyway!

Thanks so much for sharing that. I felt prompted to read the article immediately, and I'm glad I did! I have a lot to work on, but in a good way. :)

I don't know if I would say Chris was stripped of pride? Have you forgotten the Shrine that my dad has to his football glory in our house?
