Conquer the Greatest Sin!
Pride is the sin that God hates the most and punishes the most swiftly. Pride caused Satan and a third of the angels to be cast out of heaven. Pride was the cause of Adam and Eve’s dismissal from the Garden of Eden. It is also the cause of our lack of repentance over sin, which keeps God from blessing us with riches, honor, and life: “Pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way . . . do I hate” (Proverbs 8:13). God resists the proud and so do people. That is why conflicts are stirred up, because “only by pride cometh contention” (Proverbs 13:10).
