Isaiah 14:14 Lucifer who was once an angel who decided one day that he wanted to be just like God. He felt that he was perfect and did not need God. His stated intentions to be just God was a sin, a mark of imperfection. His sin was that he was rebelling against God by imagining that he could be like God.
Isaiah 14:13. Lucifer fell from grace because sin was found in him (see Ezekiel 28:15). His sin was pride where he exalted himself above God. He rebelled against God where he felt he did not need God. He felt that he had both the will and the power to do anything and be anything that he desired. He no longer needed God in his life.
God says that you are a fool when you are full of pride. You are basically deceiving yourself thinking that you are above God.

1st Timothy 6:17. Another business principle, especially for successful business persons, is to trust God over uncertain profits. 1st Timothy 6:17 tells us, “Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;”. Success in business can quickly go to one’s head.
Proverbs 26:12. Vanity and conceit make people think that they are wise, but the reality is that their conceit has made them a fool. When we are full of conceit and pride, we think we are wiser than other people and God. We are basically a know-it-all. As the definition of conceit says, we have an “unduly high opinion of ourselves”.
Proverbs 26:16. Lazy people do not seek God for direction in their lives, nor do they seek advice from others. Lazy people think that they have all the answers. Proverbs 26:16 says, "The sluggard is wiser in his own conceit than seven men that can render reason".
