I’m so proud of my humility

“God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” (James 4:6)

How do you know if someone has a problem with pride? Is there an easy fool-proof test? Yes, this is probably the easiest spiritual vise to test in another believer. Simply tell the brother that he has a problem with pride and watch the reaction! The more vehemently he denies that he has a problem in this area, the bigger his problem with pride. Only the truly humble brother will agree with you that yes, he has a problem in this area. Just think about that for a moment.

But the other side of this coin is that those who are often best at noticing the sliver of pride in their brother’s eye has the bigger beam in their own eye. So, if the above test tempted you to go out and try it out on someone else then that is a sure sign that you have a problem in this area also.
