Are You a Defensive Person?

By Justin Edwards

Proverbs 18:12 Before destruction the heart of man is haughty,
         But humility goes before honor. 

Proverbs 15:33 The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom,
      And before honor
is humility. 
When someone, specifically another Christian, approaches you about something they are concerned about in your behavior, do you find yourself being defensive and immediately throwing up your guard? This is a result of pride that is keeping you from becoming more Christ-like. If you are not open to correction, how can you possibly mature in your walk with Christ? The truth is, you cannot. Use this 4-minute video to examine yourself and determine if you need to submit this area of your life to the Lord. That is - IF you want to grow in maturity in Christ.


  1. That was a phenomenal show. I actually have defensiveness much of the time, but mine are due to the mental issues I have, which include fear and confusion. So, for me, it is not always as the show pride and such. However, I have been there in that prideful mode too...praise God he doesn't give up when we are at first being defensive about something...((HUGS)) Thanks for the show.

  2. very true, but what a strange voice to use for this communication (imo)..

  3. As long as we are submitted to God and have a heart of humility, we can be teachable. That is what's important. Pride comes before the fall...
