4 August 2019 - The Problem of Pride
Many times, we tend to find fault in the lives of others. In pointing out other's failures, we strive to fulfill a need that is found only in Jesus Christ. Last week's message reminds us that speaking evil of others is not what God intends for His children. We need to acknowledge Jesus in every decision we make, and avoid the spirt of pride and self-glorification.
