“Proud” (1343) can be used in a positive or a negative sense. Here it is obviously negative. I got in scholarly mode and came across some great descriptions.
“The precise charge is arrogance, cynical insensitivity to the needs of others, and presumption. It is both a disposition and a type of conduct....Does that describe anyone you know? I think of politicians, reporters, entertainers, waitresses, traffic cops, teachers...I guess the list could go on about all the people we can’t change.
“Sin enters the picture when there is a shift of ultimate confidence from God as object and source to oneself as object and source.” TWOT, I, p. 143
So? The big question is, “Does this describe me?” I think it starts small and puffs itself up. Time to get a pin and start popping some balloons.
