“Unfortunately…lack of pretense is in short supply today. Our sinful hearts struggle to embrace humility. Most people need no coaching on ‘Ways to Maximize Your Pride.’ Narcissism comes naturally to us….
…When our thoughts run to ourselves and our self-sufficiency, we need to dwell afresh on Christ… We remember the order of the Kingdom of Heaven: It is the lowly who inherit the earth. No one has ever ridden into the throne room of God on the wave of pride that surges in every human heart. Only the humble and the weak will see the Lord. Let us root out our pride with intensity…”
-Owen Strachan, Always in God’s Hands, 195.
