Quote of the Day

In this case the pride is evident in the way we want more for ourselves. We want to be great in something. We want recognition, reputation—some kind of personal glory—and we aren’t getting it. We want it more than we want God. We want to be a god rather than trust the true God.

What’s the alternative? We confess what’s going on and turn to the God whose glory and holiness leave us in awe, and whose humility leaves us with a different model of true humanness. [Welch, Edward T., Self Injury: When Pain Feels (Good P& R Publishing, 2004), pg. 22, 23]
