DANGER. . . . . Jeremiah 13:15 While it is good to respect our country and our church, our loyalties always carry a hidden danger--pride. When is pride harmful? When it causes (1) to look down on others; (2) to be selfish with our resources; (3) to force our solutions on others' problems; (4) to think God is blessing us because of our own merits; (5) to be content with our plans rather than seeking God's plans.
