Pride – the Bait of Satan
By John Bevere – from The Bait of Satan
Pride keeps you from dealing with truth and it distorts your vision. It causes you to view yourself as a victim.
Your attitude becomes, “I was mistreated and misjudged; therefore, I am justified in my behavior.” Because you believe you are innocent and falsely accused, you hold back forgiveness.
Though your true heart condition is hidden from you, it’s not hidden from God. Keep this in mind: just because you were mistreated, you do not have permission to hold on to an offense. Two wrongs don’t make a right! #TheBaitOfSatan
