Pride transformed Lucifer into Satan, he introduced Adam and Eve to pride, and death and suffering into the world. “Pride is the commencement of all sin,” wrote St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430).

Pride involves an excessive preoccupation with self. For example, it is bad to study hard solely to become an expert in his field.  The focus is the student ― personal glory ― pride.

Pride is foremost among the seven “deadly sins,” because it is the “sin of the devil.” Examine how pride manifests in your thoughts and replace it with HUMILITY.
