Proverbs 16:18 says, Pride leads to destruction. A proud attitude brings ruin. This is where the saying, pride comes before a fall, comes from. Pride is thinking that you're better than you really are. We are all equal in God's sight. The minute you judge someone, you are making the assumption that you are better than they are - that is pride.
Here are some more verses about pride:
In whatever you do, don't let selfishness or pride be your guide. Be humble, and honour others more than yourselves.
God is against the proud, but he is kind to the humble.
Do not be proud, but make friends with those who seem unimportant.
1 Corinthians 13:4
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud.
Can you think of a time when you have judged someone, or thought that you are better than them? Try to see them through Jesus' eyes. He loves them so much he died for them.
