What is Pride Worth?

Re: Verse reading – Jeremiah 18:1-12; 19:1-15 (day two)
I am going to bring on this city and the villages around it every disaster I pronounced against them, because they were stiff-necked and would not listen to my words. (19:15) Is getting your way worth it?  Jeremiah could not have been a popular figure when he delivered these words, but the reality is that the truth was painful.  Maybe you know someone like this; unwilling to listen, bend their will, or repent.  At times we even champion people with iron wills, but at what cost to their souls.  We are not in a position to negotiate with God, we don’t have anything to bargain with.  The arrogance that may work in a corporate setting will be smashed like a clay pot.  We don’t have to be this way, God is offering to refine and shape up into His character if we will let go of ours.
