Folks I can’t believe it! We are halfway through our Dare!
I know it hasn’t been easy but I have no doubt that those that are really making an effort are already seeing results!
Today our task is something that is easy to say but requires much sacrifice, lots of prayer and humbleness, in simple terms, it not easy to practice!
We are going to talk about pride.
How many were the times that after an argument only two words were necessary (Forgive me) to solve the problem but you refused to say them due to your pride?
You then think to yourself “but he was also wrong! If he asks for forgiveness then I will too.”
It’s always the same story, we try to hide our faults by pointing to other’s mistakes but this will never solve the problem.
You yelled at him but think “He deserved it, he aggravated me!”
You misjudged him but think “He gave me motives.”
Do you manage to see how things are? Soo many excuses! We want to avoid sacrificing at all costs!
This diabolic pride can destroy your marriage.
Therefore, our task will be…
“You will begin to observe yourself with regards to this pride and whenever necessary, setting all excuses aside, you will ask for forgiveness and seek to change your behavior. Or what good is it to apologize, continue to make the same mistake and ask for forgiveness again? It becomes worthless.”
Don’t fall in that trap!
