What is it that drives us on so relentlessly?
Are you ready? Take a deep breath and allow
Yourself to tolerate the one-word answer:
PRIDE. We work and push and strive so we
Can prove we are worthy…we are the best…
We deserve top honors. And the hidden message:
I can gain righteousness all on my own effort,
Ingenuity and energy. And because I can,
I must! And why is this heretical? Because
Ultimately this philosophy says: I really don’t
need divine righteousness. Be Careful!
Pride always comes before a fall.
