Pride and Humility Are Mutually Exclusive

This week I’m talking about last days leadership and the issue of entitlement. The attitude of entitlement is based in pride. The spiritual counterbalance to pride is humility. The extent that pride consumes the leader’s heart is the extent to which their heart is void of humility. They are mutually exclusive. They can’t occupy the same heart space.

Jesus made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death, even death on a cross! (Phil. 2:6) The more the leader humbles himself as a servant, the less room there is for pride and the feeling of entitlement. The more the leader embraces the undeserved love and acceptance of the Father, the less room there is for pride. The leader then walks in blessing, not entitlement.
