Memory Verse

For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted

Audio Icon   Luke 18:14



This episode shows us the bad kind of pride, the kind that puts all the attention on making you look good. Instead of being proud, you need to love others and love God, who is the giver of good gifts. Pride is sneaky. As it says in this episode, it’s "like a sunburn." It creeps up on you and makes you think you don't need God. It makes you feel like you can handle things without him, or even better than he can. God hates the sin of pride, because it turns our hearts away from him and away from loving others. Be on the watch for pride! If you realize you’re falling into the trap of being proud, the best thing to do is ask God's forgiveness.

Want to dig deeper and learn more about pride? Read 2 Corinthians 10:17, Philippians 2:1-4, and 1 Peter 5:5.


1. Look for someone at school that seems to have poor self-esteem, and find a way to build up him or her. Maybe you could compliment a talent you see in them. Focus on them instead of on yourself.

2. Being grateful to God and serving others are the keys to battling pride. Find an opportunity to serve those who are less fortunate, such as volunteering to serve dinner in a homeless shelter, distributing coats to the homeless in the winter, or collecting school supplies for needy children.
