Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.

Romans 12:3

Pride is the greatest barrier to a person entering recovery. Pride is also the greatest barrier to sustaining, lasting, and growth-filled recovery. The most difficult thing for many of us is to just simply walk through the doors of recovery and make the decision to continue attending recovery meetings. Then, after a while in recovery, pride rears its ugly head again. It tells us we are well and don’t need to do what others are doing to continue our recovery journeys.

Pride makes us think we need to practice image management rather than maintaining our personal relationships with Christ and others. We begin to believe the lies that we don’t need people around us to hold us accountable or encourage us to stay on the path. Pride has one purpose in our lives. It stops us from growing by separating us from Christ and the people He has placed in our lives to help us mature and grow.

Recovery from pride is possibly the most difficult thing to acquire. In order to recover from egos, we need to go beneath the surface to discover what is driving our pride. Pride will attempt to stop us and keep us looking at surface issues. When we look deeper, we find that pride is often a form of self-protection that has done more damage to us than protecting us. Our relationships with Christ can only deepen with our recovery from pride.

Today’s Prayer

Father God, help us to come to You with humility and a heart open and in need of healing. Help us to let go of our pride so that we may grow and mature in our relationships with Christ. The weight of pride is too much to continue to carry into long term recovery. We can’t save face and our behind at the same time. Help us to know that the only way to lasting recovery is through being real, honest, and humble. Amen.
