Pride Leads to Destruction

Read: Proverbs 16

Pride is an attitude that makes one feel better than the other. The Bible tells us that Satan’s pride caused him to be thrown out of heaven. Satan (Lucifer) was one of the leading angels in heaven prior to being cast out from heaven by God due to his pride (Isa. 14:12-14). Ezek. 28:14 says that Satan was an anointed cherub on the holy mountain of God and walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones. He would have worshiped God as other angels did (Ezek. 28:13). His fall led to him being rejected from his position and would be tormented in the Lake of fire and brimstone in eternity (Rev. 20:10). Satan now serves as the father of lies, disguising himself as an angel of light, seeking those he can devour (John 8:44; 2 Cor. 11:141 Pet. 5:8).
