    Before a Fall
    Series: Undo
    Luke 18:9-14

    Spiritual Pride Problem – We misplace our worth with a trust and faith in ourselves that eventually causes us to look down on others.

    Empty Promises of Unhealthy Pride:
    1. Self Sufficiency
    2. Self Worth

    Opposite Spiritual Pride – I could never be used by God.

    1. When it’s about me; it’s not about God.
    2. When it’s about God; I find grace.
    3. When it’s about God; I find opportunity.

    Application Question: Is this about lifting up God or lifting up me?

    Habakkuk – to embrace, to wrestle 

    Painful Question:

    When we get punched in the soul…
    1.  It can drive us to discover the nature of God.
    2.  It can drive us to raw honesty about ourselves and our situations.
    3.  It can drive us to a place that surrenders our own efforts for a reliance on God.

    Series: Undo
    Luke 18:9-14

    Spiritual Pride Problem – We misplace our worth with a trust and faith in ourselves that eventually causes us to look down on others.

    Empty Promises of Unhealthy Pride:
    1. Self Sufficiency
    2. Self Worth

    Opposite Spiritual Pride – I could never be used by God.

    1. When it’s about me; it’s not about God.
    2. When it’s about God; I find grace.
    3. When it’s about God; I find opportunity.

    Application Question: Is this about lifting up God or lifting up me?
