Pride seeps into everything if we do not keep a close watch on it. #daybydaylw Interested in learning more about becoming a devoted follower of Christ? Go to!   ~~~   There is not anything much more relaxing than coming home from work, eating a nice supper, settling in to your favorite recliner, and watching Sean Hannity, Don Lemon, and Tucker Carlson soothe you to sleep with their political lullabies. It seems that we cannot escape the political these days. Politics seems to be more divisive than ever, and the two parties seems to be farther away from each other in terms of morality and worldview. Add to that, that we now live in echo chambers of social media filled with algorithms that feed us only what we want to hear or see. Getting any real, unbiased news is nearly impossible today. And I know that the last thing you probably want to come to church to hear about is politics. You want to hear what God has to say about Himself, and your life, your problems, and how you can honor him. If that is the case, then I have some good news for you this morning. Even though we must address some political scenarios within our text over the next few days, you will be happy to know that the political situation is simply a cover of the human situation. Politics is the sport at hand, but which sport being played in our text is not terribly important, because the underlying factor is the heart with which the sport is being played. And at the heart of our text today is the human factor of PRIDE. Pride is not a characteristic reserved for the political arena alone. Pride seeps in everywhere. It creeps into our homes and how they function; pride creeps into our workplaces and how we think of others; pride is perhaps the most consistent church attender. Pride sneaks in through our motivations, self-perceptions, and even our quest for good and justice.
