Part 2 - The Baggage of Pride

July 18, 2021 Speaker: Randy Brock Series: Summer Baggage

Topic: Pride Scripture: Proverbs 16:18, Romans 12:3, Philippians 2:3–2:8, James 4:10

[Romans 12:3 NKJV] “For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.”

In Romans 12:3 Paul uses the Greek word “Phro-neō,” or a form of it, translated ‘think’ in three places.

  • “Phro-neō –  to have an opinion of oneself, think of oneself, to be modest, not let one’s opinion (though just) of himself exceed the bounds of modesty.” 
  • The first use of this word is seen in a negative way: seen in the Greek word hyper-phro-neō –  “to think more highly of oneself than is proper.”
  • The last use of it is Sō-phro-neō  “to be of sound mind; to be in one’s right mind; to exercise self-control; to put a moderate estimate upon oneself.”
