“Pride is the enemy of the grace of God. And those who choose to walk with Jesus should expect that He will consistently and repeatedly confront them at the point of their pride so as to shatter it. He will do the very thing that your pride says He must not do. He will offend you. He doesn’t do this to push you away but rather to set you free. Jesus recognizes what we in our pride fail to see: Our arrogance is a prison, and until the walls of arrogance are broken down around our hearts, we will never be free.”
