Amen. Good post Terry. It's interesting the pressure the world puts on us to accept ways of thinking that contradict God's word. All of our lives we are taught that pride is a virtue. As long as I can remember, taking pride in our appearance, our work, our grades, and our school, was hammered into us. The coach wanted us to take pride in our team and the drill instructor to take pride in our uniform or branch of service. We are nurtured to be vain and proud. That's why humility takes practice and is often so difficult. I need constant reminders.
"Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!"
