ASKING FOR FORGIVENESS

Pride is dangerous, it is the very reason why Satan was brought down to the depths of the pit.( Isaiah 14:13-15). We all have this pride of life and we love to put ourselves better than the others. Sometimes it shows when we wronged others or even the closest person we love, and we cannot even ask for forgiveness, we sometimes became so proud to treat them cold when in fact we are the offender. Why is that? 
I have here a conversation of God and Satan from Christopher Notes. 

Satan was complaining to the Lord, " You are unfair, so many sinners do wrong and you take them back. In fact, some back half a dozen times and you always welcome them. I make one big mistake and you condemn me forever; it is not fair."
Said the Lord, " Did you ever ask for forgiveness or repent?". 

Scary isn't it? what pride might cause us in the end. As said in 1Peter 5:5 All of you clothe yourselves with humility toward one another because, "God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble."  Will it make you a less person if you first approach your brother and say sorry and ask for forgiveness?. I don't think so. This is the reason why many offenders are unforgiven, because they do not ask for forgiveness and remorseful for what they did.

Hi, YEN! I agree, people who do not ask for forgiveness, will never be forgiven. Pride is what most people can't eat, but, people should realize the essence of our life on earth is being humble and to be worthy for the King of kings, and Lord of lords! God bless! =)

Yes, pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall. Pride is caused by a misplaced sense of importance that is embedded in our hearts and soul. We think of ourselves more perfect than others and so we manifest the symptoms of pride. We must imitate Jesus Christ who being God did not consider equality with God as something to brag but became humble and obedient to death even death on the cross. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.

It couldn't been written no better. If we plan to get into God's kingdom we must get rid of that pride and become more forgiving. An excellent thought for the week ahead: FORGIVING!

Hey there! Thanks for the very informative blog. I'm blessed reading this and I certainly agree with you that pride won't and never show humility. I know a lot of people like this but I pray for them.

God bless!

I agree with this. Sometimes we have to let go of pride and humble ourselves.

Have a nice weekend. Take care! :)
