Pride has been the starting point of many people’s downfall. It is one of the sins God hates most. It can prevent people from obeying the Gospel. And it can keep us from confessing our sins.
If we sin publicly we should make a public confession and ask for prayers from our brethren. If we sin against an individual or a small group we need to resolve that situation with the people involved. And we always need to confess our sins to God in prayer and beg for His forgiveness.
