Welcome to Eastern Hills Baptist Church
We are so glad that you decided to join us in worship today. Here at Eastern Hills we realize that we are all in different places on our journey with Christ, and that's okay. Whether you are a seeker, looking for answers, or a long-time follower of Christ, you are welcome here.

Positive: "generous elation of heart, a noble self-esteem springing from a consciousness of worth"

Negative: "inordinate self-esteem; an unreasonable conceit of one's own superiority in talents, beauty, wealth, accomplishments, rank or elevation in office, which manifests itself in lofty airs, distance, reserve, and often in contempt of others."

1) Pride makes us presumptuous. (1-2)

2) Pride makes us procrastinate. (3)

3) Pride makes us self-indulgent. (4)

4) Pride makes us careless. (5-6a)

5) Pride makes us indifferent. (6b)

6) The Lord hates selfish pride, and He will judge it. (7-11, 14)


Discuss this as a family this week:
-- What kind of pride is "good?" What kind of pride is "bad?" Can you give examples?
-- Can you think of ways this week that maybe you were self-indulgent or careless? Were those things because of pride?
-- Memorize as a family Proverbs 16:18: "Pride comes before destruction, and an arrogant spirit before a fall."
