1 Samuel 2:3-4
Talk no more so exceeding proudly; let not arrogance come out of your mouth: for the LORD is a God of knowledge…
1. The pride of conquest. "The bows of the mighty men are broken."
2. The pride of abundance. There may be pride in any and every condition of life. Children, as well as grown people, may be very proud; and God hates pride in the young as much as in the old. Some children, — nay, and some grown people, too, are proud of fine clothes, and like to strut about while the gloss is new on their wearing apparel. Others are proud of being clever; whereas they should regard their talents as a trust given them by God, of which they will have to render an account. Others are vain of their beauty; and then perhaps their beauty is taken away by some loathsome complaint, or worse still, it becomes a snare to them, as Absalom's fine long hair was the means of bringing him to his end.
