So why do Christians go around and say that they are so “Proud” of something or someone when God says that He resists the proud! He also said of His Only Begotten Son Jesus, “…in whom I am well pleased” Mark 1:11. He didn’t say He was proud of Him. The Greek word “eudokeo” is what our English word “pleased” is translated from and it means to “approve of” or “think well of”. Watch out how the culture today has termed such things as “PROUD” to be an American. Pride STINKS! It is puffed up and arrogant. The next time you speak over your child, it would be best to tell them that you are “Pleased with them”.
These are just a few verses on the LORD hating a proud person….and there are many more. Do a study and search on “proud” or “pride” in the Bible.
Psa 138:6 KJV Though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.
2Ti 3:1-2 KJV This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. (2) For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
Jas 4:6 KJV But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
1Pe 5:5-7 KJV Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. (6) Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: (7) Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
You are greatly loved in Jesus,
