When a leader allows their pride to get out of control they put themselves and their team at risk. Read Daniel 4.
King Nebuchadnezzar provides a good example of a leader with his pride seriously out of control. His experience is an example of what happens when a leader comes face-to-face with the living God. If ever any one individual had the goods to be proud it was Nebuchadnezzar. He was the son of Nabopolassar, founder of the Chaldean dynasty. He ruled the Babylonians from 605-562 BC. He was the longest reigning and most powerful king during the Neo-Babylonian period (625-539 BC). Nebuchadnezzar was a powerful military leader conquering virtually all of the known world and he built cities and structures that yet today are considered among the wonders of the world.
