Pride is a major problem in living the Christian life. In 1Peter 5:5-6 the Apostle Peter describes three relationships in which humility is needed: toward elders, toward everyone in the church, and toward God Himself. The passage also gives three strong incentives to pursue greater humility: (1) God is opposed to proud people. (2) God gives grace to humble people. (3) God will exalt the humble in His time.
