Don’t Get Over Confident | Pat Loftin

pat loftin The couple had just returned from a conference on marriage and the young husband was filled with pride as to how he would handle his wife. To her he said, “From now on you will have my meals at a certain time— you will no longer question me when I go out with the boys— you will prepare my bath water for me. And guess who will lay out my clothes and brush my hair?” Very nonchalantly and quietly emphatic she replied, “The undertaker!”

Dr. Adrian Rogers said, “More broken marriages, church splits, and business troubles are caused by pride than any other one thing.” Dr. Billy Graham said, “We are never to pray for humility— it is our job to humble ourselves.” God’s Book tells us in Proverbs 16:18, “Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall.” In I Peter 5:6 we have a beautiful promise, “Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God and He will exalt you.”
