PRIDE

Catholic Lumberjacks

By Ray Comfort

The life and death of Jesus Christ is a standing rebuke to every form of pride of which men are capable:

Pride of birth and RANK: “Is not this the carpenter’s son?” (Matthew 13:55)

Pride of WEALTH: “The Son of man has no where to lay his head.” (Matthew 8:20)

Pride of personal APPEARANCE: “There is no beauty that we should desire him.” (Isaiah 53:2)

Pride of REPUTATION: “A friend of publicans and sinners.” (Matthew 11:19)

Pride of LEARNING: “How does this Man know letters, having never studied?” (John 7:15)

Pride of SUPERIORITY: “I am among you as he that serves.” (Luke 22:27)

Pride of SUCCESS: “He was despised and rejected of men.” (Isaiah 53:3)

Pride of ABILITY: “I can of my own self do nothing.” (John 5:30)

Pride of INTELLECT: “As my Father has taught me, I speak these things.” (John 8:28)

Pride of SELF-WILL: “I seek not my own will, but the will of the Father who has sent me.” (John 5:30)

Pride in DEATH: “He became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.” (Philippians 2:8)
