Love is Not Proud

Love is not proud.

Pride is the thing that keeps you from asking for help because you don’t want others to think you have a problem, even if you do.

Pride is the thing that keeps you silent when you should speak because you don’t want to cause trouble or cause a scene even if what you need to say is true.

Pride is the thing that prevents you from reconciling because you are right. And being right is more important than a person.

Pride keeps you safe.

Except it doesn’t.

It keeps you isolated.

No matter how any people you have in your life, trying to love them through the lens of pride keeps you disconnected and self protected.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

1 Corinthians 13:4 NIV

Love is not proud.

You are loved and you are made to love others freely, fully, with hope and joy.

Lay down your pride and let love heal what is broken.
