The man with pride, loves to gather those around, who have agreement with his sins, and it certainly takes pleasure in them that do the same.
They continually aspire to convince others that they are right, and that their thinking is the only correct way. They are strict ridged disciplinarians. Pride concerns itself with justice and judgement, being a bit militant in its behavior. The things of mercy, grace, and tolerance, it only winks at, yet may serve them, if it serves itself gain.
Pride says, this is the way it has or needs to be done. The pride of the natural man does not condescend to a man of low estates, and is puffed up in its self and in its own knowledges. Neither does he wants to be guided by God, for self intelligence, and like intelligences of others, even government, is their God. He also attributes all, or most things to his own genius or management, not realizing or wanting to realize that they come from their God above.
These people do and can not have an inner joy, and continually try to, and do rob others of theirs! If unchecked the pride of the natural man will run away with itself, to the desire to supplant God, and to rule and reign in His stead.
Sometimes I think we need to remember that pride is concerned with who is right, or that I am right. Humility is concerned with what is true and what is right. Humility is concerned with the giving of grace and forgiveness. Only in humility are we able to receive the things of God. Only in humility do we recognize God's greatest and our weakness. Only then can God give unto us the many bountiful gifts He has prepared for us.
