  • Pride causes harm to others, but humility seeks to help others (10-14)
  • Pride brings God’s judgment upon you, but humility will help lead you to salvation (1-2, 15-21)
  • Ways to help you kill pride and live in humility…
    • Ponder the greatness of Jesus (Isaiah 6)
    • Pray for humility (Matthew 7:11)
