Pride cannot minister to others. Pride seeks its own reward. Pride doesn’t think of others. Pride sinks ministries.
“The correct answer is, of course, nothing. The Bible is clear on the consequences of pride. Is that not why Satan fell? Could it be the reason behind the consequences at First Christian of Florissant?
When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom. (Proverbs 11:2, ESV)”
