Pride. One of the seven deadly sins. My friend SW posted
Don’t judge someone just because they sin differently than you.
and it got me thinking. If Pride is a sin, then it must be about arrogance, conceit and vanity and the carriage of success. I am deeply honored when someone says they are proud of me for I feel it is acknowledgement that I have done something well, and something of service. There are moments where I am proud of myself. I have accomplished something I set out to do and I feel good about it. I strive to carry those successes with humility and grace. It’s a slippery slope. I could not find a quote on pride that didn’t feel pejorative and discouraging.
In the end, after much consideration, I think drinking Pride is much more fun and not nearly so serious a sin. Of course that is a slippery slope as well, for a few too many bottles and you are headed straight for gluttony.
