Humility is the way to God's heart. God doesn't receive us on the basis of our performance. He receives us on the basis of heart, and no quality of heart is more important to him than humility. Jesus said 'Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.' Humility is the fundamental of all fundamentals, the cardinal virtue, the only root from which the graces can grow. Humility is the most crucial attitude we can ever have. (This is bad news for me for I am terribly proud and it pollutes my whole life.)
The reward for the quest for humility is found in the fact that it draws us ever closer to the heart of God -- the very place for which we were made.
Pride is at the heart of all sin. Pride is wasteful. Pride is as wicked as it gets.
Chapter 1 Question: What evidence is there that you take seriously the sin of pride in your life.My answer: None; except the purchase of books on humility that are, until now, un-read.
