From Pastor Charles Neiman:

True success has more to do with who you are than what you do. Your character must keep up with your accomplishments.

“Don’t be so busy pursuing external accomplishments so that you forget internal character.”

Symptoms of pride:

  1. Arrogance – people who have convinced themselves they are owed certain perks and privileges.
  2. Proud people respond to correction with anger because they think they can’t be wrong.
  3. Pride is the complete anti-spiritual state of mind; just don’t do it.
