“Your proud heart has deceived you, you that live in the cleft of the rock…” The short book of Obadiah recognizes a big problem in human nature. We are given to be prideful, to think that we are better than other, safer than others, stronger than others, more spiritual than others, and on and on it goes. God’s word to Obadiah challenges our pride and reminds us that all pride will be brought low. What elements of pride show in my life? What about the group(s) I am part of? What is Obadiah’s message for me? Have mercy Lord Jesus.
