"There is one vice of which no person in the world is free, which everyone in the world hates when they sees it in someone else, and of which hardly any people, except Christ followers, ever imagine they are guilty themselves.

"There is no fault which makes the person more unpopular, and no fault which we are more unconscious of in ourselves. The more we have it ourselves, the more we dislike it in others. The vice I am talking of is pride or self-conceit. Pride leads to every other vice. It is the complete anti-God state of mind.

"Each person's pride is in competition with everyone else's pride. It is because I wanted to be the big noise at the party that I am so annoyed at someone else being the big noise. Pride gets no pleasure out of having something, only out of having more of it than the next man."
C.S. Lewis
The ancient Greeks had a word for ultimate pride—hubris.
"Do not imagine that if you meet a really humble person they will be what most people call. He will not be a sort of person who is always telling you that, of course, he is nobody."Probably all you will think about him is that he seemed a cheerful, intelligent person who took a real interest in what you said to him. He will not be thinking about humility. He will not be thinking about himself at all."
C.S. Lewis
Screwtape is the chief demon in Satan's underworld forces.

He writes letters to his nephew, Wormwood, a rookie demon whose assignment it is to undermine and destroy a new follower of Jesus.

Screwtape calls the Christian "the patient," and when he refers to the enemy -- you've got to keep this straight -- the enemy for him is God.
C. S. Lewis' Screwtape Letters
"Dear Wormwood: Your patient has become humble; have you drawn his attention to the fact? Catch him at the moment when he is really humble and smuggle into his mind the gratifying reflection, 'I'm being humble.' And almost immediately, pride -- pride in it's own humility -- will appear.

"If he awakens to the danger and tries to smother this new form of pride, make him proud of his attempt and so on. The enemy wants to bring the man to a state of mind in which he could design the best cathedral in the world and know it to be the best, and rejoice in the fact without being any more or less or otherwise glad at having done it than he would be if it had been done by another.

"The enemies’ whole effort, therefore, will be to get the man's mind off the subject of his own value altogether. The enemy will also try to render real in the patient's mind the doctrine that they did not create themselves, that their talents were given them. The sooner the man turns his attention outward, the better the enemy is pleased.”





The first is to look up and the second is to look out.
"After me will come one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not fit to carry. He must become greater; I must become less."
John the Baptist
"Where were you when I laid the earth's foundation? Tell me if you understand. Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know.

"Have you ever given orders to the morning or shown the dawn its place? What is the way to the abode of light? And where does darkness reside? Can you take them to their places? Do you give the horse his strength? Does the eagle soar at your command? Do you send the lightening bolts on their way?"

These questions keep coming at Job until finally he replies, "Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know."
"SDG" Soli Deo Gloria -- to God be glory
"More than any other single way, the grace of humility is worked into our lives through the discipline of service."
Richard Foster
Serving enables us to say no to our desire for a pecking order.

"When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or relatives or your rich neighbors. If you do, they may invite you back, and so you will be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame and the blind and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous."
