๐Ÿ‘‰ The Dangers of Pride

  • it leads to a false sense of security (v 3-4)
  • it blinds us to insincere allies/friends (v 7)
  • it causes us to trust in false wisdom (v 8 )
  • it tricks us into relying on manโ€™s strength ( v 9)

๐Ÿ‘‰ Things We Take Pride In

  • possessions
  • position
  • popularity
  • worldly wisdom
  • physical ability/ appearance

๐Ÿ‘‰ To stand by while our brother hurts or is mistreated makes us the same as the one hurting or mistreating him (v 11).

๐Ÿ‘‰ Do not (v 12-14):

  • gloat over your brotherโ€™s misfortune
  • rejoice over your brotherโ€™s ruin
  • boast in the day of his distress
  • gloat over his disaster
  • loot his wealth
  • harm the survivor

๐Ÿ‘‰ You reap what you sow (v 15).

๐Ÿ‘‰ The Promise (v 19-21)

The exiles (those who lived as wanderers, sojourners, foreigners) will one day possess the land. Those who longed for home but did not have it shall make a home in the promised land.

You are loved.
