Introduction to The Hollow


2 Kings 20:12-15

William Barclay wrote, “Pride is the ground in which all the other sins grow, and the parent from which all other sins come.” In today’s passage, Hezekiah’s pride, yet again, is his undoing. Foolishly, Hezekiah gave the Babylonians a grand tour showing off all of his weapons and treasures. Pride is one of Satan’s chief weapons in his battle against the Lord and His people. Pride robs God of the glory that belongs to him alone. Pastor Charles Spurgeon said, “Be not proud of race, face, place, or grace.”
