Six Mindsets to Eliminate From Your Life, Part 5


Wean Yourself of Prideful Thoughts

When I first got serious about God, I would go to church and hear that we are supposed to give God all the glory, and it bothered me. I’d think, I’ve done a few good things. I’m not a real bad guy. Look what I did recently. I can’t take credit for that?

Our tendency is to think more highly of ourselves than we ought, but the Word cautions us of that. Time and again, we see in the Word that we can do nothing without God. We are only here because of His grace. That’s why we have to get rid of prideful thinking.

Part six—and the sixth mindset to wean yourself from—will be posted next Thursday.
