This Friday’s message entitled “Life Hacks” will be part 1 of a 2 part series on life’s fundamental truths straight from the book of wisdom itself, Proverbs. The first week will focus on the number one blockage of Christians that are in a season of not being able to connect to God and their neighbor; PRIDE.
As C.S. Lewis states from his masterful work “Mere Christianity”
“There is one vice of which no man in the world is free; which everyone in the world loathes when he sees it in someone else; and of which hardly any people, except Christians, ever imagine that they are guilty themselves. I have heard people admit that they are bad-tempered, or that they cannot keep their head about girls or drink, or even that they are cowards. I do not think I have ever heard anyone who is not a Christian accuse himself of this vice. And at the same time I have very seldom met anyone, who was not a Christian, who showed the slightest mercy to it in others. There is no fault which makes a man more unpopular, and no fault which we are more unconscious of in ourselves. And the more we have it in ourselves, the more we dislike it in others.
“The vice I am talking about is Pride or Self-Conceit; and the virtue opposite to it, in Christian morals, is called Humility... it was through Pride that the devil became the devil: Pride leads to every other vice: it is the complete anti-God state of mind.” (C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity)
I hope to see you all there this Friday from 7-9:30! Have a great week!
