When pride comes, then comes disgrace,
but with humility comes wisdom.
Ego Check—Step 1
“Do not think of yourself more highly than you should. Instead, be modest in your thinking” (Rom. 12:3 TEV).
Ego Check—Step 2
“Don’t be selfish; don’t live to make a good impression on others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourself” (Phil. 2:3 NLT).
Ego Check—Step 3
“When you build fine houses … and your silver and gold increase and all you have is multiplied, then your heart will become proud … But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth” (Deut. 8:12-14, 18).
Ego Check—Step 4
“Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; someone else, and not your own lips” (Prov. 27:2).
Success is one of the devil’s
most destructive tools.
