Dealing with Pride

Question:  How can I best deal with pride in my life?  What are some ways I can develop humility? 

Answer:  Try spending the next 30 minutes absolutely quiet and without distractions.  Ask God to show you your heart, then begin to catalog the thoughts and feelings that well up.  No matter how disgusting or trivial they may be, write them down (keep a paper shredder handy for afterwards).  Ask God what He wants you to learn about yourself through this and record that.  Read the following Scriptures:  John 15:5; Luke 11:13; Psalm 103:13; 1 Corinthians 8:1-3; Philippians 2:1-11.  Meditate on these and ask God to show you where you are proud and self-centered instead of humble.
