Reflections on James 4:1 – 12 Pride

6 characteristics of prideful people! From Jonathan Edwards:
1) Prideful people are Aware of others faults, and fixates on them!
2) Pride leads to an air of contempt.
3) Pride leads you to separate from those you criticize, and those who have criticized you.
4) A proud person is pridefully dogmatic about every point of belief, and cannot distinguish between major and minor points.
5) The Proud person loves to confront, either because they like winning, or they refuse to confront because you don’t like controversy.
6) Proud people are filled with self pity because of 1 – so sure that they know how life ought to go & 2 – deserve a good life.
