Pride is Dangerous for the Leader

This week I’m talking about last days leadership and the issue of entitlement. Many leaders in the church have an entitlement attitude. They feel entitled to honor, respect, a nice building, the best sound system, and to be addressed by their title of pastor/prophet, etc. The root of this entitlement attitude is pride. Pride in what they’ve accomplished, their position in the church, their social status, which suburb they live in, their skin color, their heritage, their economic status, etc.

Pride is dangerous territory for the leader. It demands attention and attracts the demonic forces. Proverbs 16:18 says, "pride goes before destruction." A prideful leader invites destruction into his or her life. The destruction comes from both the demonic and the flesh nature and impacts everyone they lead. If you want to hear how to deal with pride tune in tomorrow to the Crossfire Minute.
