Today´s reading:
OT: Ezekiel 27-28
NT: Hebrews 11:17-31
Ps: Psalm 111
Pr: Proverbs 27:15-16

Today´s notable verse:

Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings.

Ezekiel 28:17 (NIV)

Ezekiel chapter 28 symbolizes the King of Tyre as Satan, and the prophecy and lament against the King of Tyre likewise as against Satan. In this lament we see that Satan's original sin was that which I believe is the ultimate root of all human sin: pride.
