  7. God Built
    • I know who’s built Watermark. It’s not me. I know who gives gifts. It’s not me.
  8. Pride
    • Pride is not simply being overly impressed with who you think you are in terms of accomplishment looks or position. It has most often to do with the position of your heart. It’s got to do with not listening, not being as hard on yourself as times you’re with others. It’s not humbling yourself to listen to others. It’s not thinking of God first and others first.

Summary

Please continue to love and pray for one another.
