Manifestations of Pride Pt. 5

This is the final post in the series on Manifestations of Pride. If I post anything else, you may not buy the booklet and I may get in trouble! Check out the previous posts to see the list in its entirety: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4.
25. Being impatient or irritable with others.

Proud people might become angry with others because they are concerned their own schedule or plans are being ruined. They are often inflexible on preference issues (Eph 4:31-32).

26. Being jealous or envious.

Often when they do not enjoy the same benefits, proud people have a hard time being glad for others’ successes or blessings (1 Cor 13:4)

27. Using others.

Proud people usually view others in terms of what those people can do for them and their interests. Their focus is not on ministering to others. Everything is fo rthem and about them (Matt 7:12; Phil 2:3-4)

28. Being deceitful by covering up sins, faults, and mistakes.

Some proud people will do just about anything in order for others not to find out negative things about them (Prov 11:3; 28:13)

29. Using attention-getting tactics.

Proud people may try to draw attention to themselves through dress, bizarre behavior, being rebellious, always talking about their problems, etc (1 Pet 3:3-4)

30. Not having close relationships.

Proud people often have no use for close relationships, thinking that the trouble outweigh the benefits. They may see themselves as so self-sufficient that they do not need other people (Prov 18:1-2; Heb 10:24-25)
