Pride of life
The apostle John takes great care to write to young people not to love the world or the things that are in the world, including the pride of life. We see the ravages of the pride of life with Uzziah. His father Amaziah also had this problem. Uzziah, however, started very well, and he became very strong, but it was for his loss, because of the pride of life!
“Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.” (Proverbs 16:18) “God sets Himself against the proud, but to the humble gives grace.” (1 Peter 5:5)
Here is a short video about Uzziah with three practical lessons for us. Let’s look at the Lord and learn from Him.
