Quote: Pride and its Step-Sister Pettiness

When we lose ourselves in Christ—in the sheer immensity of who He is—when we realize we have nothing good except what we receive from Him, God will save us from pride, and its step-sister, pettiness. When we see God as He really is and ourselves as we really are, pride is simply unthinkable. In the end, “only the humble are sane.” “He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way” (Psalm 25:9) ~Randy Alcorn

Pride is concerned with WHO is right. It points fingers, assigns blame, and keeps the division going in our churches, families, friendships, and marriages.

Humility is concerned with WHAT is right. "Let's drop it and honor God in our relationship."
