4 Common Sins Christians Are Oddly Okay With

“Self worth” tells you that you are superior in certain aspects. It places an arrogance on the certain gifts you’ve been given. Being absorbed with your own achievements and endlessly promoting yourself is pride. Our society likes to call it self worth, but it’s still pride.

If we are to boast about anything it should be the work and victory of Jesus.

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
(Galatians 6:14)

We have to be cautious about boasting about ourselves and building ourselves up so high that we admire ourselves more than Jesus. It’s a more common sin than we should be comfortable with. We must always keep in balance respect for ourselves and our dependence on Jesus for everything.

All these common sins are easy to fall into. They are celebrated in our world. But they shouldn’t be celebrated in our own hearts, lives, and churches.
