There is a fine line between confidence and arrogance. MMA legend Conor McGregor said, “My success isn’t a result of arrogance. It’s the result of belief.”
Belief is good. Arrogance is not.
Pastor Sam Rainer said it like this: “Arrogance is not a good vehicle for the Gospel.”
So what’s the problem with arrogance? From Tolstoy we find answers. “An arrogant person considers himself perfect. This is the chief harm of arrogance. It interferes with a person’s main task in life – becoming a better person.”
Recovery Step: God “loathes the arrogant” (Amos 6:8) and “opposes the proud” (James 4:6). It’s okay to have supreme confidence – as long as that confidence is in God.
