Our Lord condemned pride in the parable of the Pharisee and the Publican 1. Jesus said that the humble and repentant publican was justified in the eyes of God, while the proud Pharisee went home unjustified.
The antithesis of grace, arrogance is total blindness to the grace of God. Arrogance deceives its victim, JER The worst sin, pride involves inordinate self-esteem, conceit and a pre-occupation with self and rejection of authority.

We call him Satan or the devil but his original name was son of the morning, Heylel. He was the first creature to enter into this sin of pride, motivating him to rebel. Pride is the original sin found in the fallen angels in the pre-historic angelic conflict and motivated the fallen angels to rebel as well.
Pride motivated the woman in the garden to sin. A very serious mental attitude sin, jealousy causes a self-destructive mental attitude involving a system of thinking from the kosmos [the world system]. Jealousy, which includes pride and arrogance, is the strongest of all the mental attitude sins and is the other side of the coin from pride, which is the worst sin.
Jealousy is older than the human race, existing in eternity past when Lucifer, the son of the morning, became jealous of God. Jealousy surfaced in the human race when Cain became jealous of his brother, Abel.

It would be better to appreciate things that one cannot have than to have things that one is not able to appreciate. The apostle Paul says one of the signs of the last days is the fact that people would be ungrateful. Implacable people refuse to appreciate.
Appreciation of life itself, becoming suddenly aware of the miracle of being alive, on this planet, can turn what we call ordinary life into a miracle. Manifested in every believer who does not have a personal relationship with God. They eventually become a walking bombshell ready to explode at any moment and the trigger or the button which is pushed is the sin of bitterness.
