Pride... Simple... (Ahh... No)

Pride is the oldest sin in the world, well actually, before the world. By pride the angels turned against God.

What causes pride, you ask?
(1) Having a better view of yourself then you should.
(2) Ignorance (other words: dumbness, stupidity, unconsciousness)
(3) Inexperience. It's very rare that people will see youth, our age, that are humble, because we haven't been around much, and we think that we know everything. I've heard that a lot of adults, when they were younger, thought that they were so smart, but when the grew up, they didn't know as much. Now, it wasn't that they know less now, it was that they realized that they don't know everything, and that they have so much more to learn.

Let's think about Jesus:
Phil 2:7,8 "He made himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of men; and being found in a fashion as a man, He humbled Himself."-He also was born in a stable, washed the disciples feet, was whipped and beaten by earthy men that He created,! died on a cross,! etc.
Just think about when Jesus was before Pilate and the Jews, and the Jews were accusing Him of things that He didn't even do! Jesus could have said "Pilate, you might think that you are the king here, but..." and then threw them all in Hell. But instead He was humble, and let an earthy king and people put Him on the cross.
~We should be like this.
