Blind Pride

If your foot has a cut on it, you can look at it, see the problem, and address it.  If you have a broken arm, you can see the break and put a splint on it.  But what happens if someone tells you that they think your eyes aren’t working right?  You may go to the mirror and inspect your eyes, but if they look fine, are they really fine?  If they aren’t working right they might not allow you to see the problem that they themselves have!        

This is very similar to pride.  If you have a problem with lust, you know it.  If you have anger issues, they do not stay hidden.  It is easy to look at the fruit in your life and see what fruit is good and from God and what fruit is rotten.  But pride can be different.  When you are examining yourself pride distorts your vision, and the deep roots can remain hidden from your sight.
