"And all the people of Judah took Uzziah, who was sixteen years old, and made him king instead of his father Amaziah. He built Eloth and restored it to Judah, after the king slept with his fathers. Uzziah was sixteen years old when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty-two years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Jecoliah of Jerusalem. And he did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, according to all that his father Amaziah had done. He set himself to seek God in the days of Zechariah, who instructed him in the fear of God, and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him prosper.” (2 Chronicles 26:1-5)
When I read God’s Word each morning, I find inspiration and insight that keeps my day on track. Join me on this journey. Let’s settle in with His Word—it’s His Love Letter to us. Did you know that? Let’s read it like a Love Letter, expecting to glean something for our walk with Him every day. Let’s look for peace in the chaos and strength for our weaknesses. Even on our busiest days we can carve out a few minutes to refocus on the important. Can’t we? We may have to get up a little earlier, when the house is still and quiet, or stay up a few minutes after the others are tucked in for the night, but we can do this! I know we can!

This verse is so scary to me, because it's so easy to slip from being thankful for something to being proud, as if we did whatever it was. How we constantly need to guard and correct our thoughts.
I totally agree, Barbara! "...so easy to slip from being thankful for something to being proud..."
Yes it is, Donna! Thank you!
Hi Maria. I think this is one of the saddest verses in the Old Testament. To have been raised to such a high position and blessed by God only to be relegated to a life of loneliness and despair because of personal sin--what a terrible cost.
Pride truly is deceptive.
I agree, Tammy. Pride is truly deceptive!
Riveted by your connection between pride and destruction. It's so insidious.
My chrono plan puts Job right after Genesis 11, I believe!
More and more I feel that pride may be at the root of most all of our sin!
