“The Pride of Life”
Ps 124:7 Our soul has escaped as a bird out of the snare of the trapper; The snare is broken and we have escaped.
Ps 91:3 For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper
nas 1John 2:15 Do not love the world, nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. 17 And the world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of god abides forever.
the trapper only sets traps where he see’s the tracks!
whatever your hungry for is what your fruit becomes.

2Tim 3:1 But realize this that in the last days difficult times will come. 2 for men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,
3 unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, 4 treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of god; 5 holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; and avoid such men as these.

pride is trying to make things happen instead of letting things happen.
