Arrogance is a killing attitude. The idea of pride, or “lofty” (7311) eyes, is a repeated theme. It is rooted in the garden of Eden. Ultimately it involves trying to be gods ourselves.
(Ezekiel 28:2 KJV) Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God:Keep in mind the words of the serpent to Eve,
(Genesis 3:5 KJV) For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.In our schools we teach evolution that says man is the highest form of being. In the cults they end up expecting to be gods.
The Christian faith is built on bowing the knee to almighty God. We keep forgetting that we exist for His pleasure, not the other way around.
So? Heart check or eye check. Either way I am asking God to keep me humble and un-exalted.
