Pride is everywhere because it is a sin issue. Human
depravity causes decay everywhere it goes and pride is one of it's by-product. The pride in the heart of Satan caused his rebellion against God and this ultimately caused his downfall. As we read in our devotional
today, remember that God resists the proud but gives grace the humble (James 4:6).
As we proceed with the plans for EthnosDC and our individual lives it is very critical not to walk in pride. We must always have a heart to listen to God directions through: the word, prayer, godly
counselors and mentors. We must never get to the place where we think we know
it all. Many times pride sneak in unbeknownst to us but we must resist pride through the help of Holy Spirit.
As I close out this blog, I leave you with this thoughtful quote “As long as you are proud you cannot know God. A proud man is always looking down on thing and people: and, of course, as long as you are looking down you cannot see something that is above you.” ― C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

Day 3: January 13th. Pray that the Lord will give us humility; whatever we think we know, we need to humble ourselves before the Lord. Our past experiences in ministry are important but we shouldn't draw our security from them. We must completely trust in the Lord. We don’t want to do anything in pride as we move forward with EthnosDC(NWM, H2i etc) and our individual goals. Pride should have no place in our hearts-James 4:6 , 1 Peter 5:6
