THE CULTURAL EXCHANGE – HUMILITY BEFORE HONOR

Duration:42 mins 30 secs

THE CULTURAL EXCHANGE – HUMILITY BEFORE HONOR

DANIEL 4

 

“DO YOU WISH PEOPLE TO THINK WELL OF YOU? DON’T SPEAK WELL OF YOURSELF.” PASCAL

 

“THERE IS A VICE OF WHICH NO MAN IN THE WORLD IS FREE; WHICH EVERYONE LOATHES WHEN HE SEES IT IN SOMEONE ELSE; AND WHICH HARDLY ANY PEOPLE, EXCEPT CHRISTIANS, EVER IMAGINE THAT THEY ARE GUILTY THEMSELVES. I HAVE HEARD PEOPLE ADMIT THAT THEY ARE BAD-TEMPERED, OR THAT THEY CANNOT KEEP THEIR HEADS ABOUT GIRLS OR DRINK, OR EVEN THAT THEY ARE COWARDS. I DO NOT THINK I HAVE EVER HEARD ANYONE WHO WAS NOT A CHRISTIAN ACCUSE HIMSELF OF THIS VICE.

PRIDE LEADS TO EVERY OTHER VICE; IT IS THE COMPLETE ANTI-GOD STATE OF MIND.”

C.S. LEWIS

 

“PRIDE IS MORE DIFFICULT TO DISCERN THAN ANY OTHER CORRUPTION BECAUSE, BY NATURE, PRIDE IS A PERSON HAVING TOO HIGH A THOUGHT OF HIMSELF. IS IT ANY SURPRISE, THEN, THAT A PERSON WHO HAS TOO HIGH A THOUGHT OF HIM-SELF IS UNAWARE OF IT? HE THINKS THE OPINION HE HAS OF HIMSELF HAS JUST GROUNDS AND IS THEREFORE NOT TOO HIGH. AS A RESULT, THERE IS NO OTHER MATTER IN WHICH THE HEART IS MORE DECEITFUL AND UNSEARCHABLE. THE VERY NATURE OF IT IS TO WORK SELF-CONFIDENCE AND DRIVE AWAY SUSPICION OF EVIL RESPECTING ITSELF.”

JONATHAN EDWARDS
