Praise for work done well. Being included by interesting people. It feels good, right, deserved. What could be wrong with that? Yet when we have to admit to mistakes or accept rejection, it all becomes very difficult. We feel deep hurt, and we stay angry; the root of all this: pride.
In his gentle but direct manner, RT Kendall explains that a level of dignity and self-respect is good. To look presentable and to do things well gives glory to God. But somehow, finding the right balance between this and pride eludes us; which we will never admit, because of our pride.
Yet Jesus was completely humble and gave us the perfect example of a powerful life lived without conceit, smugness or arrogance. Only as we keep our eyes on him can we find that elusive balance.
