Pride is one of the deadliest sins that we can struggle with, and Lent is a season that invites us to confront and overcome it.
But why is pride a sin? According to Proverbs 16:18, "Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall." In other words, pride leads us to overestimate our own abilities and importance, which blinds us to our flaws and weaknesses.
So, what can we do to be more humble? One way is to practice gratitude. When we acknowledge the blessings that we have received from God, we are less likely to take credit for our own achievements.
During this Lenten season, let us pray for the grace to be humble and to prioritize the needs of others. By doing so, we can align ourselves with God's will and experience true joy and freedom.
