The Heart God Revives

Proud people focus on the failure of others.
Broken people are overwhelmed with a sense of their own spiritual need.

Proud people have a critical, fault-finding spirit; they look at everyone else’s fault with a microscope but their own with a telescope.
Broken people are compassionate; they forgive much because they know how much they have been forgiven.

Proud people are self-righteous; they look down on others.
Broken people esteem all others better than themselves.

Proud people have an independent, self-sufficient spirit.
Broken people have a dependent spirit; they recognize their need for others.

Proud people are willing to prove that they are right
Broken people are willing to yield the rights; they have meek spirit.

Proud people are self -protective of their time, their rights and their reputation.
Broken people are self -denying.

Proud people desire to be served.
Broken people are motivated to be faithful and to make others a success.

Proud people to be a success.
Broken people are motivated to be faithful and to make others a success.

Proud people desire self -advancement.
Broken people desire to promote others.

Proud people have a drive to be recognized and appreciated.
Broken people have a sense of their own unworthiness; they are thrilled that God would use them at all.

Proud people are wounded when others are promoted and they are overlooked.
Broken people are eager for others to get the credit; they rejoice when others are lifted up.

Proud people have a subconscious feeling, “This ministry/church is privileged to have me and my gifts.” They think of what they can do for God.
Broken people’s heart attitude is, “I don’t deserve to have  a part in any ministry.” They know that they have nothing to offer God except the life of Jesus flowing through their broken lives.

Proud people feel confident in how much they know.
Broken people are humbled by how very much they have to learn.
