One of the most deceitful and undetectable sins is the sin of pride.  Pride infiltrates to the inner core of our beings and sabotages the roots of our thinking.  It reprograms our logical rationale and skews our self-perception.  Pride is an unabashed self-seeker.  Pride will not stop till we have dethroned God in our own minds and hearts and placed ourselves on His throne.  Pride is crafty enough to let us believe that we honor God while in reality we have left Him as only a puppet to approve of our own sovereignty.  Pride gives us the license to pursue all other sins.  Because pride is a direct rival to God, He has placed it at the top of His enemy list (Isaiah 2:11-12).

It is almost impossible to keep up with how fast our world is changing.  Some of the change is good, but it seems like the advance of ungodliness is accelerating rapidly.  This reality does not come as a shock to Christians who read their Bibles (2 Peter 3:3-4; 2 Timothy 3:1-5).  Should we live in fear?  Should we join the world in living for ourselves?  In the midst of a society very similar to ours, the prophet Isaiah sees a vision of the future that gives us solid hope and challenges us in the present to seek first the kingdom of God.

No relationship ever stays the same. Relationships are constantly changing because people are constantly changing. Friendships from school, or past employments that once were very close often drift apart due to the separation of distance and time. Our relationship with God is constantly changing not because God changes, but because we are always changing.
