Pride Rationalizes

Pride is a terrible thing. It makes you rationalize the reasons to remain in the state that makes you miserable.

You can't say you have given it to Jesus to take care of while still feeling angry and miserable. If you feel angry and miserable it's evidence that you haven't given anything to God but words.

Actions speak louder than words. That's not in the those words, but it is there:

James 2
18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

Pray for those who profess to believe, yet doubt their ability to have faith.

If this has inspired you, please share it!
