when pride comes, then comes shame; but with the humble is wisdom. Proverbs 11:2
John Milton, in his Christian Classic PARADISE LOST, writes of Satan “Better to reign in hell then serve in heaven.” This statement is the personification of pride!
If you want to try and do things on your own, God will let you. You won’t enjoy it much, but maybe we can sell popcorn.
If you understand HUMILITY; you can say “Lord, less of me and more of You, please.”
